Barbara Davis-Pyles and Justin Hillgrove, Cliff the Failed Troll

Sun, 01/24/2021 - 4:00pm

We're so excited to welcome one of our favorite local kids authors back to the (virtual) Readings Gallery! Barabara Davis-Pyles will appear with the illustrator of her latest book, Justin Hillgrove.


Cliff the Failed Troll is a fun and original story about 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! But are things different for him at pirate school? Aye, that they arrrre!

Barbara Davis-Pyles, author of Grizzly Boy and Stubby the Fearless Squid, has written hundreds of fiction and nonfiction pieces for the children's education market.When Barbara's not writing, she can be found hiking, biking, or packing for a road trip. She lives in the northwest corner of Washington State with her family.

Justin Hillgrove is a Pacific Northwest artist who loves painting monsters, robots, and other such nonsense, and has worked on everything from comics and toys to tabletop games. Justin lives in Snohomish, Washington with his wife, four kids, some chickens and ducks, a rabbit, and a dozen or so imaginary friends.
