Three goats, Gruff, Rugg, and Tuff, are nothing but bullies to everyone in the meadow. When they pass over the little ogre’s bridge, they ruin the peace on the other side of the meadow. However, the bullies will learn their lesson, when they pick on the wrong animal.

This book puts a very nice twist on the children’s classic, The Three Billy Goats Gruff. It still has the basic outline of the original, but the author changes the characters personality and even adds something to make it a little different from it. The author makes it so that the goats are the bad guys and the ogre is the good one. Even with some slight changes, it was still a nice and interesting take.

Also, I think the illustrations were more adorable than the original. :P They had a very soft and gentle feeling to them, and they were enjoyable to look at. It was also very easy to read/see the text.

Overall, the book is a very enjoyable read, so go ahead and read it to your children. :D
