"This is a story about happiness: how far some will go to get it, and how far we went to get it back."
- Poppy, Trolls

Who or what are the Trolls? Unlike the original fairytale creatures, these Trolls are not ugly, slow-witted, or dangerous. The Trolls are exuberantly happy creatures. They love to spend all day singing, dancing, and hugging one another. Poppy is the happiest of all.

Poppy is a Troll princess. As a baby, she escaped with other Trolls from the Bergens, sad, hungry creatures that only feel happy after eating a Troll. Twenty years later, she must rescue her people from the clutches of the Bergens once again.

Did you know? The popularity of Trolls dates back to 1959. A fisherman named Thomas Dam lived in Denmark. He couldn't afford to buy a Christmas gift for his daughter, so he carved her a doll - the first Troll, based on Norse mythology. Other children admired the doll, and he soon founded a company to produce them. The Trolls quickly became popular in Denmark and other European countries. They were introduced to the United States in 1963.
