I have to say this book was not at all what I expected it to be. I originally began reading this thinking that it was going to be a full length story, but the book was actually different stories/ poems on each page. I didn't think that the book had a rhythm to it whatsoever, it seemed to almost jump around way too much to keep track. Despite some of the mini stories or poems being cute, the author didn't elaborate any further to fully enjoy the story. ( )

Super fun read-aloud . . . similar to The Dragon's Are Singing Tonight. ( )

Monday's Troll is a book of poems. It is about witches, wizards, and trolls. Each poem tells about a different witch, wizard, or troll.

This book has several different poems in it. Some are harder than others to read, but for the most part it is an intermediate book. The different poems represent spooky items and tell a story about the events of the spooky items.

This book is a poetry book that has chapters written in a rhyming pattern. It is about a series of trolls, witches, and wizards, in which each "person" begins a new chapter. The book uses many describing adjectives to portray the many trolls, witches, and wizards.

Monday's troll is mean and rotten,
Tuesday's troll is misbegotten...

As for Wednesday's troll--and all the others--as soon as you read about them, they will be in your head (and heart) forever.

Once again the collaborators of The Dragons Are Singing Tonight have combined their extraordinary talents to concoct an irresistible collection of trolls, wizards, witches, giants, ogres (and a solitary yeti). No spell is needed for these poems and pictures to enchant the reader. Just open the book!

"Jack Prelutsky is up to his usual hilarious no good in this new collection of witchy, wizardly, ogreish poems....Among the subjects of these briskly amusing poems is a wizard who rashly makes himself disappear, a seven-century-old apprentice witch....and a family-type ogre....Prelutsky's skill with catchy rhymes and delightfully fiendish subject matter is complemented by Peter Sis's humorously foreboding and cheerfully nonchalant illustrations. Another treat for Prelutsky fans."--Horn Book.

(see all 4 descriptions)

A collection of seventeen poems about such unsavory characters as witches, ogres, wizards, trolls, giants, a yeti, and seven grubby goblins.
