Top Customer Reviews
For example in the "Editorial Reviews From School Library Journal" the reviewer says that the 'goats are angry' and that 'the baby goat is wearing a diaper'. I assure you that none of these elements are present in the Paul Galdone version of the story. Neither is there a black leather jacket. (No wonder the reviewer didn't like it. Sounds dreadful.)
What you will find is a classic retelling of the story of troll versus goats; and the usual delightful Galdone artwork. *Look Inside* this book yourself and see.
Certainly my family has enjoyed this version.
F.Y.I. Many of the children were happy to see the troll wasn't killed only pushed off the bridge. It is sonething to mention if it goes unnoticed.
Overall I highly recommend this version over any other I have seen out there because of the illustrations, simple text and story flow.
The story is valuable for its humor and its read-aloud qualities: each goat trips across the bridge with a different sound, and the repetition of the story, with its dialogue between goats and trolls, is interactive and pleasing for young children. The troll is depicted frighteningly enough to seem a real threat without causing nightmares, and the tension builds toward a satisfying climax. While not essential, this is a very nice addition to a children's library. It is also available in an audio version.
