Set against candyfloss clouds and rolling green hills, Henriette Barkow's charming retelling of this traditional Norwegian folktale brings a cast of memorable characters to life for a new generation of readers. 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' encourages creative problem solving and develops decision making skills. The story could be used to prompt children to weigh up different outcomes and possibilities: why did the first two billy goats tell the troll to wait for their brother? What would have happened if the last billy goat had not been so brave? 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' can also be used to discuss whether folktales always have moral messages.
