A Troll That Likes To Rock 'n' Roll!

So here we are once more at my bar with guess what? Another children's book from my little rhyming butt. This one goes to its own tune and even brings down the moon. An Alien comes to play and the town surely does not have such a nice day. But never fear for Rusty Troll is near.


Look, it's lunch.
The cat likes that a whole bunch.
Boy, do they crunch.
The cat does like to munch.

Eerie shadows are lurking.
Some could even be smirking.
Are they all just working?
I know your interest is perking.
This guy is chowing down.
In his moon made town.
On a troll wish.
Do you think that's a tasty dish?


Look at Rusty Troll go.
He could be putting on a show.
With his drumming stream.
Or is it just a dream?


I guess to find out.
What it is all about.
You will just have to go
And give Rusty Troll, the alien, the man in the moon and many more a read at your show.

(Can be viewed on your computer as well, isn't that swell?)


Just click the links above to show Rusty Troll some love.
And a review on amazon too would be nice of you!

Oh and yes in case you didn't guess it yet, which might be a safe bet. The drums and troll that likes to play rock 'n' roll was inpsired by Irish Air. Aren't I nice at my lair? Unless of course you think I'm calling her a troll. Then I may dig myself a hole. But it is known she has one to protect things under her sun. Now number six has come to pass of the children's books from my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  24. What a cute book with excellent illustrations! The troll drummer reminds me of Maynard G. Krebs. He's probably before your time, though you may know him as Gilligan from the castaway line. Julie

  26. I should have read this post. You dedicated this book to Anne by calling her a troll. Yeah right.

    I would lend a hand to elsie to dig that six foot hole.

    Anyway I liked the book let me see how my kids like it.

    Loved the pictures and the wonderful rhyme BTW.
