The sun is up early these days. A sun ray is creeping into an opening in the old stump where Troll Brother lives, finding its way to his bed. First it finds Troll Brother's mouth, then his nose and finally his two eyes. Troll Brother dreams about warm milk sweetened with honey, then he sneezes 13 times in a row, and finally the bright sun ray chases away the rest of his sleep.
He looks around in the bedroom. Troll Sister and Troll Mother are both snoring aloud, and Troll Brother knows that there will be no more sleep for him. As silent as possible with his heavy, clumsy troll body, he leaves his bed and sneaks out to explore The Edges.
Most of the snow has melted now. Troll Brother makes a snowball and throws it as far as he can. He follows the ball with his eyes, blinking in the morning sun. He blinks again. Something sticks in his eyes. What is this? Has the sun fallen down and is now shining up on him from the dark brown soil? This must be explored.
Troll Brother jumps over snow, stones, the first green leaves of a primrose, he bends away the bud of a daffodill. "What is this? A crown? Oh, princess Madelaine Frederica must have passed The Edges during the night, and lost her crown in the darkness."
Troll Sister is awake now, already out exploring new flowers and colours. A red Trolljuice Flower is full of sweet troll juice. She will tell Troll Brother and together they can come back with their straws to drink the juice. Blue beads seem to be growing directly up from the soil. Troll Sister bends down to get a better look.
Suddenly she hears Troll Brother breathing heavily, whispering as loud as he can not to wake Troll Mother: "Troll Sister, Troll Sister, look what I've found! Princess Madelaine Frederica must have passed during the night and has lost her golden crown. I have it here! Look Troll Sister, look!" Troll Brother was so eager, Troll Sister could hardly understand his whisper. But she saw the crown and knew that they were up for a great adventure. " Princess Madelaine Frederica's crown, here in their Edges. Oh, this was surly going to be a perfect day!"
