This sweet and funny story is about feeling different and embracing who we are.
Once Upon a Time, there lived a troll named Cliff who isn't very good at sitting still or being a "proper" troll. He'd much rather be a pirate anyway!
"Ahoy!" he shouts upon meeting other trolls, who then remind him that the proper troll hello is "Go away!" After a report card full of Fs in bridge building, stoney staring, and even goat gobbling (he's a vegetarian!), Cliff sets off for pirate school.
But are things different for him there? Aye, that they arrrre!
This humorous story is about appreciating who we are and knowing there is a place where we fit in the world.
