Three Billygoats, A Bridge and John Bauer

Do you love troll stories? Have you heard the story of the Three Billygoats Gruff? Here are some fantastic trolls by John Bauer. I love these awesome posters and so I wanted to showcase them here. This is a highly visual pageand was initially interactive, but to see more of the John Bauer troll posters you will now need to actively follow the link after the grey box.

When I was very small my Father would tuck me and my sister into bed with a story each night. My favorite was the Three Billygoats Gruff, I would ask for that story time after time and I believed then that my Father made the stories up especially for us. Together we would huff and puff and sing "I am a troll, fol de rol..." miraculously we had few nightmares about trolls.

When I was a little older, like many little girls, I cultivated a collection of hairy little beasts that copied Dam's then unpatented original troll dolls. I have many fond memories of trolls! Lately I have been arranging some of Grieg's music, and trolls came to mind so I did a little exploration of troll images on Zazzle and came up with these favourites. John Bauer's fantasy art features quite strongly but there is also quite a lot of more modern troll art out there and I hope to show you a little of what is available in the troll universe!


The Troll Bridge

A Troll And A Billygoat At The Troll Bridge

I thought this poster was a super illustration of the childhood story I loved so well! A troll, a goat and a hump backed bridge.... Once upon a time there lived Three Billygoats Gruff....

This poster really leapt out at me when I was searching through. I found it more cute than scary - I could not resist this troll dragon print.

Thomas Dam Trolls - The Original Troll Doll

Thomas Dam invented the wooden Troll Doll for his children but was too poor to patent it. Soon the market was flooded with plastic imitations. There are many troll dolls now, but his remain a firm favorite with children.

Trolls' House, Eastern Iceland by Bob Crist

Trolls' House

Trolls live where it is really bleak and you could forgive them being somewhat grumpy (and very hungry too) if you had to live somewhere like this.

Troll Hair Day!

Wig To Look Like A Troll

Actually, this image made me laugh because it so reminds me of myself in the morning before my cup of tea! Everyday is a bad hair day you know, and like my childhood troll dolls, it takes time to brush into submission! If you would like a troll wig of your own (because growing one takes REAL talent) just click on the image!

Forest Trolls are Lurking...

A Troll Is Lurking Nearby.

Trolls are expert at hiding and the forest troll is no exception! That is why they can be so dangerous of course.... Watch your step in the forest and don't feed the trolls!

Do you have fond memories of Dam Trolls? Thank you for visiting this cave! :)
