A young Troll flees into the night, seeking places to hide. What has scared the little monster so much? The mischievous Banshee at school seems to know the answer! Maybe it has something to do with that ancient proverb, “The only thing that can truly terrify a troll is… love.” When the Troll rocks up at home, where its parents are waiting, the truth will out…

Darren Shan has published over 60 books for older children and adults, has sold around 30 million copies across the world, and is best known for Cirque Du Freak, which has been turned into a Hollywood movie and a Japanese manga.

Eva Byrne is a printmaker and portrait artist, who graduated from the Limerick School of Art and Design in 2014 with a degree in Printmaking and Contemporary Practice, and is currently studying for an MA in Fine Art.

The pair of Limerick-based creators have combined to produce their first children’s picture book, and have launched a fundraiser to help make it happen. Their plan is to create a SIGNED, NUMBERED, HARDBACK, LIMITED EDITION of The Terrified Troll. There will be between 32 and 40 pages. The print run will be based on the number of pre-orders that they get in their campaign.

The team has created a series of exciting PERKS to supplement the pre-orders. Eva has created exclusive stickers and prints and sketches, while Darren is offering backers one-to-one ZOOM chats, a hand-written poem, and even a chance to meet him (to just hang out, or have dinner, or even join him on an amazing personal tour in which he’ll bring the worlds of his books to life!)
