Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No one draws trolls better than the Caldecott Honor artist Paul Galdone, and this beloved read-aloud classic about the three brother billy goats who dare to cross the hideous trolls bridge to get to the sweet grass on the other side has never been more dramatic. Galdones full-color, pen and ink wash illustrations are wild and woolly. The artist uses thin, multicolored lines to great effect, especially with the trolls hair. Bold perspectives, such as one view of the goat from under the bridge, add suspense and drama to an age-old favorite

Synopsis:

The three goat brothers brave the terrible troll in a colorful version of the classic tale.

About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
