The Three Billy Goats Gruff

The Story

is about three goats, who must cross a river to get to a hillside on the other side of a stream in order to eat and fatten themselves up. To do so, however, they must first cross a bridge, under which lives a fearsome and hideous troll, who eats anyone who tries to cross the bridge.
