In the lyric colors of a Norwegian spring, Marcia Brown, brings to life the folktale about the three billy goats and the wicked old troll. Generations of children have claimed this as a favorite story, and it is presented here in a perfect harmony of pictures and text.
Three hungry goats all named Gruff want to go across the bridge to the meadow to make themselves fat. But under the bridge is a terrifying troll who is also hungry. The littlest goes across telling the hungry troll to wait for the second goat who is much bigger. The second goes across telling him to wait for the big Billy Goat Gruff for he was biggest of all. Will the last goat make it across the bridge without becoming troll-food?
