Its imaginative, creative, funny, exciting and too short! I was recently hospitalized and took my kindle down to the pediatric wing where I read Thistle and Fanes story [...]

    2. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This is a cute, quick read. I felt like it was really just laying the background for a bigger story to come. I loved getting to meet the main characters and learn a little bit of troll background. I was able to glimpse a vision of true friendship with Fane and Thistle and I look forward to seeing how it grows in the future book. It also showed their willingness to sacrifice both for those they loved and those they had not met befor [...]

The first thing I noticed was the great amount of detail used, I felt the characters could be real, and I could picture the surroundings perfectly. This story was a thrilling read, full of magic and mischief. It keeps you hooked to the very end and makes you want to know what will happen next. Overall I loved it!

She'll do anything to get it back, even if it means defying the troll-king's orders and crossing the Mangleblood River. Her best friend, Thane, is willing to help her, but will Thistle's quest change their lives forever?The Truth About Mud is a yucky, brilliant, enchanting, muddy adventure that readers of any age will love. For me, it was a page-turning story, and though I'm quite a bit older than the intended audience f [...]

    6. The first thing that attracted me to this book was the title and the cover and once I picked it up there was just no putting it down. The storyline flows smoothly and the characters immediately draw you in. Ms. Rozelle has a wonderful way with words so you find yourself captivated by the vivid imagery she shares with us. People of all ages will fall in love with Thistle as she pushes to discover the many other things outside of her world and as she shows us that strength and courage comes in all [...]

    7. The story/world reminded me of other fantasy tales like Strange Magic (the George Lucas movie). It was somewhat intriguing, but the biggest turn off for me (and something which I felt was a substantial part of the story) was the stereotypical gender roles for the characters and the instantaneous heteronormativity that I felt was entirely unnecessary. Not to mention that the protagonist is your typical "girl who's not like any other girls" but is immediately smitten with the first hot guy she mee [...]

    10. This was a cute little story that I can't wait to share with my son. I know he's going to want to know more about the adventures of Thistle and Fane and the magical world of Muds! I liked the message that it doesn't matter what color or type of "creature" we are that counts. It is only important that we are friendly to and accepting of everyone.

    11. This was an intriguing Short read. It kept me in the edge of my seat and guessing what would happen next. I also live the fact that it is kid friendly and the author found alternative means to cuss. Over all it had a great plot and left me wanting more.

    12. "'It is customary for proper trolls to wipe all mucus at eye-level, on trees or other perennial plants, rocks, and structures. This shall ensure that our territory be marked clear in case of outsider invasion. Plus, it's just good manners.'" (Rozelle, 8). The Truth About Mud is a fun little novella based on the life of a troll. Setting out after a crow that stole her Nan's medallion, she soon discovers a whole other world she didn't even know about - and that she might not be accepted into. Wh [...]

    19. Children's books aren't my normal genre now that my youngest is 12 but I was invited to the release party for this one and I felt I owed it to the author to at least read and review it. I can't tell you how glad I am that I did. I am still chuckling and grinning - such a cute story!! Ms. Rozelle paints such a vivid fantasy world of trolls - both muds and treasures - you can't help but imagine lush illustrations in your mind. You will cringe trying unsuccessfully to hide your laughter at the snot [...]

    20. Learned the hard way round that it can be very useful to read the blurb the writer writes about the book before starting the book. Would have saved me a lot of grey hairs wondering what it was all about in the first 10 pages. I did like the idea of the story and the way Thistle and Fane work together. For a story this short you do get some introduction in the life of them, but I missed the discription of the living environment so you could imagine where they were going. Guess will come in the se [...]

    22. Two young Mud trolls are the misfits of their community. He is weaker than the other males and she doesn't want to do any of the normal female activities. When they try to recover an item stolen by a crow, they find themselves on an adventure that could change the lives of all trolls forever.This is a short story but it still has a lot of world building in it. The two types of trolls are different from any type of troll I previously have known. This is the first story of a series it seems so the [...]

    23. This was a cute little story. The author was incredibly imaginative in her world and culture. She had some very interesting details about troll life, and despite being in a completely new fantasy world, I found things easy to follow and thought that the story moved at a good pace. The story arc felt a bit lacking, and I was rather dissatisfied with the ending. I also felt like the filler swear words--despite being clever in their creativity--were peppered in so often they distracted my attention [...]

    24. I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Reluctant readers will love how gross the main characters act in their normal daily lives. Thistle longs to be a warrior, but can't because she's a "femme". Her friend, Fane wants to be the best he can at what he does. I'm pretty sure he doesn't really want to only be a warrior.Rozzelle does an excellent job of making the story seem real with her details, the description of emotions, and the twists and turns as the story unfolds. It will be [...]

    25. This was an adorable book about a make believe place where trolls live in mud and wonder what’s up that mountain on the other side of the river and the serious trouble they get into when they venture there! This would be a GREAT book to read little one’s for quiet time or just before bed! It was cute, crazy and just fun!

    26. The story is interesting. A different kind genre than I'm used to. However there is a lack of information and descriptions about the characters. Especially in the first half. In the beginning it very difficult to feel a connection with the characters because of this.I received a free copy for an honest review.

    27. Cute.A cute tale about a pair of trolls. Quick and easy to read, plenty of action with some fun and well described characters. I enjoyed this a lot and it would be a great story to read to a child.

    28. The Truth About MudWhat a cute little treasure to read. I hope this is an introductory snippet because I would enjoy reading more of this world of trolls.

    29. I enjoyed this book. My daughters enjoyed it as well. I look forward to another look into the world Christina created.
