|The second I read "That Your Child to Work Day" I was grinning - love how the trolls are so much like us humans, in so many ways! Thumbprint's comments on her partens' jobs are brilliant and hilarious! Especially liked: "That means he tells everyone how much their past is worth."|

|I love how matter of fact Thumbprint is about her Mother's job, and that she would prefer her father's the line at the very end is my favourite, 'That means he tells everyone how much their past is worth.'|

|Wow! I do hope her mother never saw this! It's neat to see trolling culture this way, and the final line was very telling about their view of history and it's importance!|

|What I like about this is how subtle it shows some more of troll culture. The idea that the children go to schools is neat and that they are encouraged to look at the world around them with certain goals and understanding in mind. It's different from how the elves are prepared for their adulthood which flows in a less organized way. |
I also enjoy glimpses at how many different jobs there are and finally I really like how the last line shows us in that early age how clever Thumpprint is even as a kid. Even if the writing is very much the one of a child her thoughts are those of a sharp observer and she knows what she wants and why.

|Ha, I loved this! I could certainly see it as something a child had written. And the realization Thumbprint had about not wanting to do her mother's job made me chuckle.|

|Haha, I had to laugh so hard when starting the second passage. The pluntness of children! Wonderful!|
And really, that last line is pretty clever.
