The Three Billy Goats Gruff
The big ugly troll waits under the bridge for the goats to cross. First comes the smallest goat, then the middle-sized one. Both convince the troll to wait for their older brother, as he will make a much better feast. But when the biggest goat passes, the troll gets the surprise of his life. A stunning new version of an old classic. Full color.

When adapting a classic folk tale like this for children, the art is everything, as there are so many editions out there. This particular version is really beautiful, with a sophisticated style in the painting. The page design for the words is clean as well. This was one of my favorite books growing up, and that's mostly because of the art.
