A Story Starter:

. . . Tremor Troll couldn't wait to go to school on a bright and chilly February morning. His class was having a Valentine's Day party. Tremor loved parties. He would get to eat all kinds of goodies. His mother had made a big bag of his favorite dessert, liver chip cookies, for the party. What a great day this would be!
. . . There was one thing about the party that Tremor was looking forward to even more than the food. Everyone would be exchanging Valentine cards. Tremor had made a special card for Trogella Troll, the girl of his dreams.
. . . Tremor was very proud of that card. He had drawn a picture of Trogella and himself, standing together, framed by a big heart. Inside the card, he'd neatly written the most romantic poem he had ever created.

. . . “No other girl is the least bit like you.
. . . You are more dusty and scarier too.
. . . Your hair is so green and your eyes are so red.
. . . You smell even better than moldy old bread!”
