Summary
"Hold your horsepower," said the little man with a stamp, a stomp, and a snort. "This is a troll bridge. I'm the Troll. Now, start passing the buck."
Bill Bob, Billy Bo, and Just Plain Billy don't have enough money to cross the troll bridge. But by pooling their pennies with the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack, the Three SIlly Billies are able to pay the toll and cross the deep river in jolly good style. And there's a whopping surprise in store for the Troll!
As in Earthquack!, Margie Palatini and Barry Moser combine their talents to create an inventive new version of a favorite folktale.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 2. The pair who created Earthquack! 0 (2002) reunite for riotous fun as several fairy tales fracture in a wild picture-book disaster. A grumpy, stumpy, hideous toll-bridge troll demanding money stops not only the three silly billy goats but also the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, and a furious Jack from crossing the river. To best the monster, the travelers must join together to pool their resources. The sounds of the words and the puns ("Hey, Red, don't be blue") are as much fun as the quarrels, and Moser's big watercolor portraits show angry standoffs between characters that put a contemporary spin on a tale about a monster: the troll wears a hard hat; the goats sport cool sunglasses; and Red Riding Hood has painted toenails and a hammer, as well as a makeup brush, in her basket. Great for storytelling, especially for kids familiar with the original tales. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2005 Booklist"
