The Three Billy Goats Gruff meets Walter the Farting Dog in this irresistibly kid-friendly read-aloud picture book that has the flavor of a classic nursery tale but with a huge surprise gross-out factor that will leave kids howling with laughter.
Goblin is proud to say that without a doubt, he is the most horrible creature in the forest. But then he meets Troll, who begs to differ--how could anyone be more horrible than he is And so the two decide to ask passersby for their opinions. A terrified man chooses Troll, but then a petrified woman opts for Goblin. When a little girl skips by, Troll and Goblin agree that she should make the final call. The winner? Read to find out--you won't believe who it is.
