Mai and Tou find themselves lost in the forest and stumble upon a path which leads them to a house made entirely out of books! They are captured by the troll who lives there (who, interestingly enough, can't read) and unravel the mystery of the house made of books before being reunited with their parents and changing the life of one lonely, illiterate troll. A heart-warming, original, bilingual fairy tale which incorporates elements of Hansel and Gretel, Three Billy Goats Gruff, and The Wizard of Oz. 35 pages with black and white drawings by artist Josh Loppnow. First published in 2002. A favorite read-aloud in Hmong and English.
