Praise For The Three Billy Goats Gruff Book & Cassette

"Galdone's dramatic, colorful illustrations are well suited to this old Scandinavian tale. Even the scale of the pictures seem to tell the story: the first Billy Goat Gruff looks small against a looming bridge; soon the troll completely fills the page, and then the big Billy Goat Gruff spreads across two. The third Billy Goat Gruff's gruesome challenge is deleted, and he butts his wild-haired, blue-nosed, yellow-toothed enemy into the water, marches trium- phantly up a daisy-covered hillside, and makes himself fat." Booklist, ALA

"This is bound to rivet attention at any story hour, and it ends reassuringly with the goats getting fat in peaceful spring-green fields of daisies. . . ." Kirkus Reviews

"Galdone's illustrations are in his usual bold, clear style. The three Billy Goats Gruff are expressively drawn, and the troll looks appropriately ferocious and ugly. The large, lively double-page spreads are sure to win a responsive audience at story hour." School Library Journal
