Hamilton Troll meets Written By Kathleen J Shields Character Illustrations By Leigh A Klug Background Illustrations By Carol W Bryant Hi Im Elwood Woodpecker Ratatattat the sound echoed on ratatattat the beat of a song Hamilton was taking a walk by the river when an awful moan made Hamilton shiver But unlike the sound a woodpecker makes this sound was harder and took numerous breaks Like a thousand wood hammers banging at stone Constantly hitting Hamilton heard a loud moan He went to investigate simply wondering who would be moaning like this He hadnt a clue Investigate to look into examine in order to find out something When he saw a woodpecker holding still his red head His eyes closed moaning Just up ahead Im Hamilton He spoke as he approached the ground Shhh cried the bird as he went to lay down Im Elwood He whispered his head seemed to pound as it rolled on his shoulders and swayed all around I was looking for food Bugs live in dead trees I tap holes in the bark so my thin beak can squeeze inside and retrieve them those tasty small bugs termites and ants and sometimes fat slugs But this tree gave me a headache I dont know why My beak even hurts I could almost cry
