Praise for Rosen Trevithick

"Brilliant."
- The Independent
"I've been reading The Troll Trap during guided reading sessions with my year 5 children. Quite simply, they love it! The smiles on the children's faces, their sniggering and eagerness for the next session are an absolute joy."
- D. Spiteri (Year 5 Teacher)
"A very short story which made a very big impact, I actually found myself at one point holding my breath."
- A. Coburn (Amazon Top 500 Reviewer)
"Once again Rosen has succeeded in crafting a delightful story, full of humour yet delving into the more serious side of human nature and relationships."
- P. Elliot (Goodreads Mod)
