This is my little friend, Mr. Troll. He lives in the cabinet which houses my computer. Today I took him out for a walk with me. He's great company, although he is a bit shy.
It took some doing, but I finally convinced him that you would very much like to see him.
We like all the same things - rocks and ferns and mushrooms and mosses. In fact, mushrooms are his favorite food! He also likes earthworms, eeeeeew.
The first stop along the way was a visit to his friend, Toad.
We brought him flowers.
Then we went down to the creek. Mr. Troll likes it here, because it is cool and dark (the bright light kinda hurts his eyes) and this is where the mushrooms grow. It was approaching lunch time, so we decided to look around for something to eat.
"These are lovely!" I said. But he says this kind is too tough for him to chew. (He's only got two front teeth, you see)
He settled on this lovely yellow one. He asked if I wanted a bite , but I told him I can't eat these. I think he was relieved.
We had to stop and admire every mushroom we passed along the way.
"Spectacular!" he cried when we saw this gorgeous shaggy looking specimen.
Who knew he would turn out to be such a ham?
Then he said he wanted a house like Toad's. And this one has a garden!
Nom, nom, nom.....
And that was Mr. Troll's big adventure :)
