Every bridge has its very own troll living underneath it – some are good and some are nasty. Walter is a lovely, friendly and sometimes a little bit vulnerable troll who suddenly finds himself homeless after a brush with three nasty trolls.
The imagination of the custodians of an historic toll bridge in rural Herefordshire has sparked the creation a delightful new story book for children called Walter Under the Bridge – all about a Troll called Walter who has made his home under the arches of their bridge.
The colourful book, based on an idea by Maggie Taylor has been thoughtfully written by local author Dion Child and beautifully illustrated by local artist Graeme Bowen. Its imaginative storyline draws readers in to the story about how Walter the Troll was forced to search for a new place to live when he discovered Whitney Bridge and made a home under its arches over 200 years ago.
The book introduces the many friends that Walter makes along the way, including a host of riverside animals and Chester, the American Cocker Spaniel, who welcomes him with open paws to his new abode.
Walter under the Bridge is a lovely book, full of fun, following the story of Walter’s adventures as he sets off to find another home and discovers new friends at Whitney Bridge. By the time we got to the end of the book, little man was convinced that troll existed and he wanted to meet Walter.
The Walter under the Bridge book is suitable for children aged 4-9 (as well as the young at heart) and is available online on Amazon and at all good book shops.
