Can the three Billy Goats Gruff cross the troll’s bridge without being eaten? Find out in the perfect board book introduction to the beloved must-have classic by two-time Caldecott Honor–winner Paul Galdone.
The three Billy Goats Gruff are hungry! They want to go over the bridge and up the hillside to a fine meadow full of grass and daisies where they can eat and eat and eat. But under the bridge lives a troll who's as mean as he is ugly…How will they ever get past him? An energetic, predictable chorus makes for a wonderful read-aloud of this classic tale.
Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Students League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. He illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote. The winner of two Caldecott Honors, Mr. Galdone is fondly remembered for his lively style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
