All Troll wants is to be able to eat an Oliver. However, catching an Oliver is tricky and no matter what Troll does, he has a hard time succeeding. Oliver won’t stand still and let himself get caught. By spring, Troll becomes discouraged because all he has had to eat are twigs and stones. The next day the Oliver is on the lookout for Troll, but Troll never comes. Just when Oliver thinks he has won, the tables turn and Troll has a chance to get what he wants.
