The Review

Cheese bridge, a quaint little town that is a self proclaimed "Gouda place to live", may not be so good after all. Why you ask? Let me tell you. You see under Cheesebridge, there is a society of BoxTrolls. Scavengers of anything broken or unused to fix or make better. That's not how the townsfolk see them though. The BoxTrolls are seen as frightening, scary monsters. After the tramshaw baby is taken by the BoxTrolls. The poor creatures go from scavengers to murderers, at least in the eyes of the townsfolk. What none of them realize is the baby is alive and well being raised as a BoxTroll. He no longer has a surface name, but is known solely as "Eggs". As the years progress "Eggs" grows and realizes he's slightly different than his BoxTroll family. He's the only one that can't fit into his box. On a quest to learn more, "Eggs" is in for more than he bargained for. The villain of the story is set on destroying all the BoxTrolls for nothing more than a white hat. When Eggs realizes there's something he can do, he does it, only to realize his story isn't what he thought. The way this story ends is surprisingly refreshing. It has all the makings of a modern day rendition of "The Borrowers" with a Tim Burton feel to it. Though there are a few minorly scary parts, it's definitely one for all ages. Silly enough for the young, and touching enough for the young at heart.
