Summary:

Across the river from a family of billy goats lies a lovely meadow where the grass is greener and the sun is brighter. There’s just one problem. To get to the other side of the river, the billy goats must cross a bridge that is fiercely guarded by a hideous and hungry troll. This beautifully illustrated retelling of the classic fairy tale features a twist ending that emphasizes the benefits of working together to achieve great things.
