About the Book
Sniggle-Snuggle, a little boy troll, has a beautiful long tail. Sniggle-Snuggle loves to boast and his Mamma loves to show him off. The other trolls are tired of this bragging, so Sniggle-Snuggle decides to impress the humans with his tail instead. But, his source of pride in the troll world makes him different in the human world, and Sniggle-Snuggle is rejected by many. Ultimately, through his adversity Sniggle-Snuggle has adventures and even becomes a hero!
This Swedish fairytale was first written over one hundred years ago by Julia Totten Coley’s grandmother. Julia adapted and rewrote that original story, and this book is the result.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story; it was unique and captivating. I like that it originated with the author's grandmother. My granddaughters liked it as well. They found the pictures to be interesting although a bit strange and scary.
I love that Julia has carried this Swedish Fairy forward for all to enjoy. Wonderful and refreshing difference from stories of today. So many emotions and NO violence, teaching lessons of adversity, perseverance, determination and Sniggle Snuggle is a superhero I am looking forward to sharing this fairy tale with my grandkids.
