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.
