Product Description
 
In the majestic kingdom of Holly Hills lives Tim the Timid, a shy boy who has big dreams. He longs to join the jousting team so he can be one of the Knights, the coolest and most valiant kids at Ye-Olde Elementary School. When tryouts are announced, Tim's friend Becky the Brave offers him some advice... whatever Tim does, he must learn to ignore the trolls. For it's not all fairies and unicorns in Holly Hills, the land is overrun with nasty, mocking creatures that love to say cruel things about others. Tim begins his quest to join the jousting team, but while practicing, a troll uses his magic picture taker to take embarrassing photos of Tim failing, and claims the boy will never be good enough. Despite his friend's warning, Tim is unable to stop himself, and attempts to fight off the troll. But the more Tim pushes back, the more trolls gather and sneer, sending blue birds to tweet out messages far and wide that Tim is a total failure. Tim is ready to give up, but Becky the Brave refuses to let the trolls get the better of her friend. With Becky's encouragement, Tim learns to just ignore the trolls and their empty taunts, and rides to victory.In the majestic kingdom of Holly Hills lives Tim the Timid, a shy boy who has big dreams.
