I saw this picture and loved it. It first reminded me of the BFG, and then I noticed some differences. I really like some of the language used in this story starter – particularly some of the imagery created by powerful verbs such as “wrenched”, and powerful adverbs such as “helplessly”. I think they really show the reader how powerful the troll is and how the owners were feeling.
I wonder if any of you could continue this story, or start a new story based on this image? After that, others could give you some feedback about your successes and how to get better. I advise you to practise your noticing learning muscle to look at all of the details in the picture, if you get stuck for ideas.
