Goat-Tastic!

Do you loves goat-tastic books? Read this retelling!

As you most-likely know, bridges, trolls, and goats appear in a great many tales. This one, by the late Richard Jackson and illustrated by Katherine Tillotson, brings to light two questions: Who wants what? and Do they get it? Spoiler alert… It is not a surprise that the goats get what they want and the mutt-muttering defeated troll loses out. Chuckler alert… The famous Brothers Gruff join up with their not famous, Cousins Gruff who in the end want more stories. This picture book promises and delivers a hilarious “full story” retelling with effective onomatopoeia, alliteration, and rhythm as the goats travel trip-trapping to the mountain opposite.
