Book - The Three Billy Goats Gruff
Once upon a time, there was a little boy who loved fairy tales very much. Me, obviously. That little boy was me, Mac Barnett. I’ve always loved reading fairy tales. Now, I’ve written new versions of some of these old stories, and it makes me glad to share them with you.
The Three Billy Goats Gruff was first written down in Norway almost two hundred years ago, but people had been telling it out loud for a long while before that. Every time someone told the story, they changed it, at least a little bit, and sometimes a lot. Things got added, and things got taken out. At first this story didn’t have any pictures, because it wasn’t set down in a book, and, besides, picture books hadn’t been invented yet. (Some people might disagree with that, but I’m right.) This book does have pictures, and Jon Klassen drew them.
