In this delightful new take on the classic fairy tale, follow both the three billy goats on the hunt for the truly greenest grass, and the long-suffering troll who just wants his peace and quiet back. Children will learn that it's best to be grateful for what you already have, rather than constantly being unhappy and wishing for something just a tiny bit better.

This book is a joy to read, with cute, appealing illustrations and rhyme scheme that's incredibly catchy and well-written. This would be a really fun one for parents to read aloud for story time with their kids, but kids would have just as much fun reading it themselves! Trip Trap Trouble is a lot of fun and I highly recommend it, and it would make an excellent addition to any child's bookshelf!
