Synopsis

The Three Billy Goats' Stuff by Bob Hartman

Once again, Bob Hartman gives his inimitable treatment to a retelling of the popular traditional tale of the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. This time the Troll can be found under the climbing frame in the school playground of the Traditional Academy for Small Furry Animals and the Odd Mythical Creature. Children are sure to know a similar bullying character in their own school and will be delighted to see the Troll get his come-uppance. Jacqueline East's witty illustrations include appealing yet characterful animals and a suitably obnoxious Troll. This fun-filled tale will appeal to fans of The Wolf Who Cried Boy and other Hartman followers.
