Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Galdone's dramatic, colorful illustrations are well suited to this old Scandinavian tale. Even the scale of the pictures seem to tell the story: the first Billy Goat Gruff looks small against a looming bridge; soon the troll completely fills the page, and then the big Billy Goat Gruff spreads across two. The third Billy Goat Gruff's gruesome challenge is deleted, and he butts his wild-haired, blue-nosed, yellow-toothed enemy into the water, marches trium- phantly up a daisy-covered hillside, and makes himself fat." Booklist, ALA

"This is bound to rivet attention at any story hour, and it ends reassuringly with the goats getting fat in peaceful spring-green fields of daisies. . . ." Kirkus Reviews

"Galdone's illustrations are in his usual bold, clear style. The three Billy Goats Gruff are expressively drawn, and the troll looks appropriately ferocious and ugly. The large, lively double-page spreads are sure to win a responsive audience at story hour." School Library Journal

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-The three goat brothers brave the terrible troll under the bridge to reach a meadow of grass and daisies.
Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
This classic retelling of the Norwegian folktale has been given a new life in this smaller format reprint. A favorite of storytellers for its energy and the lyrical cadence of the "trip trap" refrain, it retains all of the integrity of the original. Galdone's larger-than-life illustrations capture the drama as one-by-one, from the smallest to the largest; the Billy Goats cross the forbidden bridge and encounter the Troll. With his bulbous nose, yellow teeth, and colorful flowing locks and his fur shirt girded with a chain belt, the Troll is menacing and frightening and just a wee bit comical. In succession, each Billy Goat becomes larger and more intimidating resulting in the reader hanging onto every word waiting for the inevitable showdown. Generations of children have rooted for the Billy Goats and will once again cheer as the Troll meets his just fate. The satisfying and familiar tag of "so snip, snap, snout, this tale's told out" adds a note of finality. A tale one never tires of is ready for a new generation of readers. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey

Meet the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
