“Well, come along! I've got two spears,
And I'll poke your eyeballs out at your ears;
I've got besides two curling-stones,
And I'll crush you to bits, body and bones.“

“TRIP, TRAP, TRIP, TRAP,” over the bridge. (example of onomatopoeia)

the main reason I like this story and would like it in my classroom is for the repetition and all the onomatopoeias.

This classic story is adventurous and funny, with lots of repetition. Three billy goats work together to trick a mean troll, because the troll just wants to eat them. This story is written in a way understandable for young children and is a good nursery rhyme. It‘s also a good representation of family/friends sticking together in hard times.

“So snip, snap, snout, This tale told out.”. I liked the use of onomatopoeia in this book throughout the story, especially how they ended the story with it.

I would read this children to teach them that bigger isn‘t always better.

This story is based on the original troll bridge folktale, focusing specifically on cumulative tales. I enjoyed the illustrations a lot as it made the story very simple. The billy goats were illustrated to look good and the troll was illustrated to look bad. It did a very good job personifying the goats and making them human.

“Well, come along!” said the big Billy Goat Gruff. “I‘ve got two horns and four hard hooves. See what you can do!”

blurb

I like the repetitiveness of the story. It can get the kids involved in which they can help predict what will come next!

The Three Billy Goats Gruff is written by Paul Galdone and was published in 1973. The story goes through 3 goats who attempt to cross the bridge. However, under the bridge, lives a small troll who wants to eat the goats! The final and largest goat allows the troll to try to eat him but fights back and wins because he is stronger!

“The Three Billy Goats Gruff” was written by Paul Galdone in 1981. This describes a cute tale of three billy goats named Gruff. The tale tells a story about them traveling to the mountain to eat and they encounter a troll. Overall, I really enjoyed this story and this authors way of writing!

My favorite part of this story is the illustrations. The bright colors used to create the trolls hair brings the story to life and captivates the reader.

The classic folktales “three billygoats gruff” told by Paul Galdone and was published in 1973. Galdone illuminates the tale through colorful illustrations and classical traditional writing style. This cumulative tale is easy and predictable for children to read. A great classic to have in the classroom and one of those stories everyone just knows.

Quick and simple read. It was very direct too. The language is repetitive, but that is the point of the story. Can captivate the attention of the reader though.

This book is a great book for young readers. Hard to understand or find a meaning behind it.

This book was written in 1981. This is a classical story about how the goats try to outsmart a troll. The troll's anger allows the goats to play tricks on him. The trickery allows readers to laugh and acknowledge the humor throughout the book.
