In case you aren’t aware of the story, it involves a rather hungry big blue Troll who is trying to capture and eat a small boy named Oliver who is tricky to catch. Oliver goes to the shops every day and outwits poor hungry Troll, until one day when Troll hides in Oliver’s kitchen cupboard, jumps out and eats him! The trouble is that Olivers taste revolting. Deflated, Troll is still hungry until, PING! Oliver’s cakes come out of the oven and Troll and Oliver become firm cake buddies.
