“You are food. Those muscles you flex to walk, lift, and talk? They’re patties of meat topped with chewy tendon. That skin you’ve paid so much attention to in mirrors? It’s delicious to the right tongues, a casserole of succulent tissue. And those bones that give you the strength to make your way in the world? They rattle between teeth as the marrow is sucked down slobbering throats. These facts are unpleasant but useful. There are things out there, you see, that don’t cower in holes to be captured by us and cooked over our fires. These things have their own ways of trapping their kills, their own fires, their own appetites.”

Jim Sturges is your typical teen in suburban San Bernardino—one with an embarrassingly overprotective dad, a best friend named “Tubby” who shares his hatred of all things torturous (like gym class), and a crush on a girl who doesn’t know he exists. But everything changes for Jim when a forty-five-year old mystery resurfaces, threatening the lives of everyone in his seemingly sleepy town. Soon Jim has to team up with a band of unlikely (and some unhuman) heroes to battle the monsters he never knew existed.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The young want stories that do not lie about the shadows under beds and bridges—and in human hearts. Trollhunters teaches us about both kinds. About true friendship, grim and slimy heroes, the strength of outsiders—and the courage it takes to face everyday life.”

    Cornelia Funke, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Narrator Kirby Heyborne works his vocal magic in a story that is, by turns, amusing and blood curdling…Heyborne is in his element as he creates the garbled language and horrifying growls and howls of the fearsome trolls. He’s equally at home voicing teens and adults, particularly the stuttering local sheriff…Heyborne keeps it moving along with his expert pacing and inflection…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “Featuring plenty of edge-of-your-seat action…[with] an eclectic and endearing cast of troll and human characters…The heart-pounding opening chapter would make an excellent library or classroom read-aloud. This funny, gory first series installment may engage reluctant readers, particularly those familiar with del Toro’s horror films…More gruesome than scary, this title will be a hit with teens and adults who love action-packed, dark fantasy adventures.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The gruesome text…makes for a fantastic adventure in an underground kingdom that’s just as dangerous as the trials and tribulations of middle school. I’m never looking under my bed again.”

    Tony DiTerlizzi, co-creator of The Spiderwick Chronicles
