Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Gruff, Ruff, and Tuff, bully their way across a bridge and into a meadow — teasing a kind ogre and butting small animals along the way. The ogre, frustrated that being friendly and polite didn't work, hatches a plan to teach the "bully" goats a lesson. This twist on "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" is a great read-aloud (and discussion starter) will have kids laughing in the aisles.

Review:

"That's right, it's bully goats — a smart and timely idea for breathing new life into a classic. This time, the hero is the 'really nice' guy under the bridge: Little Ogre, who's Shrek green, sports a purple Mohawk, and is 'friends with everybody.' He knows he's no match for Gruff, Ruff, and Tuff — goats so nasty that after crossing the bridge and entering the meadow, they proceed to trample wildflowers and head-butt baby animals. Like anyone afflicted by bullying, Little Ogre feels powerless — until he remembers the baby skunks who live in the tallest, sweetest grass. Terry's (The Three Little Gators) rendering style, which look like a cross between airbrushing and pastel work, can feel too controlled and well-groomed for this tongue-in-cheek retelling; while the persecuted baby animals are funny, and the final image has a triumphant cuteness, Little Ogre only registers the broadest emotions. Kimmelman (The Little Red Hen and the Passover Matzah) nods to her source material with a 'trip trap' refrain and other rhythmic elements, but most of the fun comes from seeing a fairy tale's tables turned — and turned again. Ages 4 — 8. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:
