Tiny Troll throws a GIANT tantrum when Mommy goes out! What will soothe her little monster?

Tiny Troll loves his mommy. More than puddles. More than earwigs. But tonight, Mommy is going to a party, and Mrs. Hag is coming to babysit.

"I'm NOT a baby!" Tiny Troll wails, then refuses to give Mommy a kiss good-bye.

What a little monster!

He tosses his toys and THUMP-THUMP-THUMPS his tail and throws a great big tantrum. Nothing could stop him from crying. Except...

"The just-right blend of drama and humor - all from a juvenile troll's point of view - results in a story sure to elicit giggles, delighted screams of "eww" and plenty of happy-ending "aww"s." -Kirkus
