In this version of the familiar story, we learn the startling true story of what happened that day on the bridge between three billy goats and the troll who lived under that bridge. And one of the ideas the goats had is still with us today! Storyteller/Illustrator Jonathan Ellers weaves the story with words and drawings. For children ages 4 and older.
