Back to the Troll Family Portrait


Tillie Troll

Tillie Troll is smack-dab in the middle of the Troll family, the sixth
oldest child - or the sixth youngest, depending on how you look at
things.
But that doesn't bother her. She's a girl who knows what she
wants,
and she's determined to get it. She's the star of "The Girl-King",
the fourth story in the book. The title of the story tells you all about
her
secret dream. But can a girl be king? You'll have to read the story
to find out! And when you do, you'll also find out whether
there are
dragons and evil wizards in Lapland. Charge through the
briars and
brambles with Tillie, Sir Pedro, Sir John Dark and the
others and find
out what they learn about life, including one of the
most important
lessons we all need to learn.


Here's a picture of Tillie with the family's old mare, Greydog. Now
what do you think Tillie is wondering? And what do you think
Greydog is thinking?
