A Scots version of Julia Donaldson’s book ‘The Troll’ was recently produced by Edinburgh-based writer James Robertson who has also previously written version of other Donaldson, and Dahl stories. Published by Itchy Coo and Black & White Publishing this version is called ‘The Troll and the Kist o Gowd’.  It tells the story of the troll, his jealously-guarded bridge, and pirates on an island whose treasure chest (kist o gowd) the troll hides in. The book is 32 pages long and is beautifully illustrated by David Roberts and will, no doubt, make the perfect bedtime reading out loud for both parents and children alike.
