In this three-in-one adventure, the Grunt and the Grouch crash the opening of the local swimming pool, get tangled up on a camping trip, and tackle babysitting Grunt's trouble-making cousin.
- Humor, disgusting monsters and vibrant illustrations all wrapped up with a heartwarming ending
- Trolls and monsters are popular sellers
The first story of the dirty trolls and the pool was gross, I would never swim where there were bugs and cheese. Don't you have to shower before going in the pool? When they babysat it was really funny and I liked the glitter paint she used. I would like to go camping where they did just without any trolls if I could.
This book is broken into three short stories, each highlighting a time period in the life of two messy, nasty trolls. The stories are cute and entertaining for readers in the K-3 grade levels, with just enough illustrations to entertain. The illustrations are really great and paint a fun picture that helps determine the story for readers struggling with some words. While a bit gross with lots of talk of snot there is a princess to entertain even the girliest of girls!
