Now, start passing the buck."andlt;/Iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Bill Bob, Billy Bo, and Just Plain Billy don't have enough money to cross the troll bridge.

As in their celebrated "Earthquack!," Palatini and Moser combine their talents to create an raucous retelling of "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" that's ideal for reading aloud and reinforcing math concepts. Full color.
