Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805069828, Hardcover)

Trolls from far and wide came to hear Gus sing.
His singing made them happy.

The tale of a troll who learns the hard way that riches don't bring happiness

In exchange for Gus's songs, the trolls brought him crunchy nuts and juicy berries. As a special treat they brought him a shiny pebble from the bottom of the brook. Gus was happy. Then one day he saw a gold ring on the toe of a raven. Owning that ring, Gus decided, was the only thing that would make his happiness complete.

New illustrations and a new jacket by Peter Sís illuminate Max Bolliger's timeless classic tale.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:05:28 -0400)

Gus, a troll who loves to sing, makes everyone happy with his songs until his desire for gold becomes so strong that he no longer has time to use his beautiful voice.
