Mommy informs Tiny Troll that she is going out tonight. She has asked Mrs. Hag to come and sit with Tiny Troll. Tiny Troll insists that he is not a baby but mommy insists that he needs a sitter. Mrs. Hag comes and Tiny Troll clings to mommy. Mommy offers a kiss goodbye but he tuns his head to pout. This is a cute book about what a child might expect when left with a sitter. Mrs. Hag is patient and gentle. She even gives Tiny Troll a favorite special treat.
The illustrations are wonderfully imaginative and endearing! They really make the book!
