Wit prevails

A retelling of the classic, THE THREE BILLY GOATS GRUFF by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen.

Characters: gross troll, The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Theme: greed

Conflict: strength vs wit

Plot: Troll is hungrily waiting under his littered bridge for food to cross over when he hears the footsteps of the small Billy Goat Gruff.

Troll confronts Small Billy Goat and tells him he is going to eat him but Small is smart and he outwits Troll by convincing him that if he waits, he will get a bigger meal.

The scene is repeated with Middle-Sized Billy Goat Gruff.

When Large Billy Goat Gruff comes along, well, let's just say The Three Billy Goat Gruffs' have nothing to worry about the next time they cross the bridge.

Setting: rural countryside
