Award-winning author Ellen Kindt McKenzie seamlessly mixes fantasy and reality in this story of how one young boy learns to overcome his fears with the help of a mysterious friend. com User, 16 years ago. "Under The Bridge" by Ellen Kindt McKenzie was a very interesting book. I liked the character ideas, the climax, and the unique setting. The climax is when ritchie's mom is taken in the night by what believes to be a troll.

Slowly Ritchie finds out that his mother is in a hospital with a "nervous breakdown," and he tries to imagine what that means. Unfortunately, the bleak realism is interrupted with some kind of cutesy, comic half-fantasy about a "troll" that lives under the bridge and writes to the kids in a special lingo about how to cope with the monster in their lives. The letter writer is really a musician, who provides a warm, nurturing male figure in contrast to the father.

I loved this book when I borrowed it from the library years ago, and always meant to go find it again. It is every bit as good as I remember - just shorter than I remember!

It is a book with layers - a story for younger readers, but then one also behind that, which the older readers will see and appreciate, about the kindness of neighbors in a crisis. The author dedicated this book to her brother, which made me wonder if the story is true, or partly true - something that happened in their childhood. She tells it in a lovely understated way ... just as "pod" obliquely shares thoughts, comfort, and advice in his letters.

"Under The Bridge" by Ellen Kindt McKenzie was a very interesting book. I liked the character ideas, the climax, and the unique setting. The climax is when ritchie's mom is taken in the night by what believes to be a troll. Ritchie is ten and is described so well, you think that he is standing right beside of you.it takes place on an old farm in a cottage that has a river running along it. Ritchey, and the author describe this place as the best in the world.
The best part is when Ritchie and his little sister,Rosie,rescue his mother from the troll. The worst part is when the troll dies, and just wanted somebody to talk to.
The conflict and the climax are the best story elements in the book. Ellem Kindt McKenziedescribes the conflict between the troll and society, as well as the troll and himself. He is exluded from society because he is inhumane. The climax also is described well as Ritchey's feelings and his mother's feelings when she is being taken from Ritchey.

This book is so deep that I wonder how it could only be a children's book. My sister gave it to me for my 24th birthday and I loved it immediately. Written about a young boy and girl who face real life problems, this book teaches such important messages about friendship, hope, and family. Ms. McKenzie's writing is exceptional and one could really believe that Ritchie and Rosie are real people. The children are given so much life and their characters have a depth that is hard to find in many childrens books.

I found myself relating so much to Ritchie that it was almost scary! Some books seem to be able to take the most difficult problems and somehow come up with an answer to them while still being readable and enjoyable. This is one of those books. You'll come away feeling that the life is worth living and that people are worth loving. I would reccomend it to anyone, and especially to anyone who has imagined that there was a troll under the bridge!
