Noe just moved into a new house, and hasn’t made any new friends. One day, while playing in the backyard, he comes face to face with Azote, a real-life mountain troll. Azote is terrifying, but he’s actually not mean at all, so Noe invites him over the next day for a snack. He quickly disovers that being friends with a troll isn’t exactly the most relaxing job in the world…
#2 – Super Strong!
Noe is laughing the stock of the class: he doesn’t even know how to climb a rope. He’s so bad that hin class mate Jules has nichnamed him Nue Strongman. Back at home, Noe is desperate. To cheer him up, Azote offers to take him on a trip to Borneo, giving him a chance to discover his hidden powers.
#3 – Welcome to Troll Land!
Noe is annoyed: the troll refuses to introduce him to his family. Why does he want to keep them apart? After another endless quarrel, Azote gives in and takes Noe into the mountains to meet his clan. This little outing in the midst of a gang of hairy, uncouth giants turns into a genuine ordeal for Noe.
