Product Description

Review

A fun twist on that classic tale of troll and goat (The Star (Sheffield))

Rachael Mortimer's lively text takes the story line of the Billy Goats Gruff to a whole new level of sheer absurdity that works for both adults and children ... Different sizes of text fairly gallop the story along ... Liz Pichon's zany illustrations spin the yarn still further with touches of humour that will amuse the reader even after what I suspect will be many readings (Books For Keeps)

Bright, clever combination of artwork and telling. (School Librarian)

Takes the story line of Billy Goat's Gruff to a whole new level of sheer absurdity that works for both adults and children. (Books for Keeps)

Vividly brought to life by Liz Pichon's energetic and colourful illustrations. (Carousel)

A fun twist on that classic tale of troll and goat. (Sheffield Star)

When doing traditional tales in my reception class I bought this story as a comparison. To not give the ending away the children love this version.... a brilliant and clever story with some suburb illustrations.

I bought this for my 3 year old granddaughter as we like to play 'running from the troll' on the bridge by us but sI couldn't find the ladybird three billy goats gruff book. I am really pleased I couldn't as this is so much nicer. It's funny - with the troll being taken in by the 'to let' advertisement and his 'threats' to the billy goats gruff..it has a lovely rhythm building up the sense of 'scary' and then coming down to r'esolved neatly'. my granddaughter loves the idea of the troll having a penchant for 'goat stew'. The troll manages to look scary but friendly too. It is easy to read and scans well and the illustrations are delightful. The story has a hidden themes - that what you do affects others, that your enjoyment can be anothers nightmare, that there can be good reasons why someone is grumpy, that you can use your mind to create workable solutions, that one can feel compassion for others even when they are scary, and it's helpful to have a bit of give and take. My granddaughter loves it and so do I.. it's our current favourite. If you are hesitating, don't.. buy it!

I heard this story on cbeebies and absolutely loved it and had to buy it. its a lovely twist on a version of a classic story with beautiful pictures and a happy ending. its very cleverly written and should become a new classic amongst childrens bookcases. perfect too for teachers teaching traditional /classic stories as it will help the children to develop their imagination in creating their own twists on traditional tales.
