All the Troll wants is to catch a goat – but when s string of other creatures trip-trap over his bridge instead, he’s stuck with boring old fish for supper. Bother!
Meanwhile, Hank Chief and his pirate crew love fish – but without a decent recipe between them, their slimy supper is even worse. If only they could find the buried treasure and afford to pay a ship's cook ... but it seems they've sailed to the wrong island. Again.
Watch the fun unfold as these two worlds collide in a richly inventive, gloriously comic tale. Illustrated by David Roberts.

It was Ben Buckle's turn to do the cooking. He cooked fish pie.
''It's soggy,'' said Percy Patch.
''It's slimy,'' said Peg Polkadot.
