Eggs is an orphan who was adopted by the Boxtrolls who live under the town of Cheesebridge. The Boxtrolls are creatures who reuse the trash thrown away by humans to make inventive creations. When Archibald Snatcher devises a plan to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs goes to the streets where he meets Winnifred. Together, they hatch a plan to save the Boxtrolls from destruction.

Britte Rasmussen Marsh is a writer, educator and community organizer based in Portland, Oregon.  Her current work includes several troll-based initiatives, including Trolls: A Retrospective which chronicles the history of trolls from the Viking age to our contemporary era.  Another work is WeTroll, a non-fiction book that explores the "troll diaspora" from Scandinavia to North America in order to ask "are trolls real, and have you encountered one?"  To stay tuned for further developments, you may contact her via wetrollinfo@gmail.com or check out www.skrifald.com/about/about-wetroll .
