Editorial Reviews

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.
From the Publisher
"The large, lively, double-page spreads are sure to win a responsive audience at story hour."—School Library Journal
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

    Timeless Classic

    I loved this story as a child and am so glad it is available as an ebook for future generations!

    Don't buy this Nook Book!!

    The lettering is so tiny as to be almost unreadable on the Nook screen. B&N should know better than simply to reproduce printed pages from large books when they know how small the print will be on the Nook screen. And there's no way to know how tiny the letters will be before buying the book! I want my money back!!!

    Three Billy Goats Gruff

    This is a wonderful, clever book. Kept me entertained for years as a young child. My daughter loved it when she was young. Still a favorite for the young ones in our family. This is one of those stories that withstands the test of time. Any child that loves animals will like this.

    I had to vivid of an imagination..

    I hated this story as a kid, and although I haven't read the story in awhile now that I am married and soon to have kids of my own I might give it another try. For some reason this book gave me nightmares, but hopefully I am just a wuss and my kids won't be! Ü
