A charming everyman and a mysterious something-under-the-bridge cross paths in a short fairy tale by the number one New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park and the Simon Snow series.

It’s fate when a man accidentally drops his phone off the bridge. It’s fortune when it’s retrieved by a friendly shape sloshing in the muck underneath. From that day forward, as they share a coffee every morning, an unlikely friendship blooms. Considering the reality for the man above, where life seems perfect, and that of the sharp-witted creature below, how forever after can a happy ending be?

The Prince and the Troll is part of Faraway, a collection of retold fairy tales that take the happily-ever-after in daring new directions. Whether read or listened to in one sitting, prepare to be charmed, moved, enlightened, and frightened all over again.


Rainbow Rowell is the award-winning number one New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, and the Simon Snow series. Her first graphic novel, Pumpkinheads, with artist Faith Erin Hicks, was released in 2019. She lives in Omaha, Nebraska.

REVIEW:
A sweet love story of sorts, but I didn't care for the ending at all. I wanted a parade of emotions, and I was left with a big HUH?!
Weird, I've never thought of a female troll before, and now that will be all I can see. When you think of a troll, you think of an ugly being under the bridge. She may have been a troll but that's about where it ended with similarities. You never really got to know if she was ugly or not. With beauty being in the eye of the beholder, it's hard to trust Adam's feelings on it. Since he visited her every day it does make one wonder.
A really cool fairytale, even if I didn't connect it to the original story at all.


4/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
