The Trolls

Polly Horvath. Farrar Straus Giroux, $5.95 (144pp) ISBN 978-0-374-47991-6

When the baby-sitter cancels at the last minute, Aunt Sally fills in and shares plenty of tall tales in this National Book Award finalist, about which PW said, ""Horvath's dry humor runs like a current through the book, sweeping readers along in the breathless anticipation of the next bit of absurdity."" Ages 8-12. (Apr.)
