The Three Billy Goats Gruff by Paul Galdone

The Three Billy Goats have found that their current abode is devoid of much in the way of scrumptious grass and other grazing options. When they locate a field across the way, all they need do is cross a bridge to find fresh options. This bridge is guarded by a troll, whose main interest is to devour the goats. The smallest argues that he is too petite, the middle one speaks of his larger brother about to cross, and the largest... well he takes matters into his own hooves. Neo laughed, having not heard this story before, but knows that violence does not solve anything.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

The original story tells of three billy goats in an "eat me when I'm fatter" plot. The smaller billy goats trick the troll, while the largest pokes out the troll's eyes and crushes him to bits under his hooves. Toll, the toll troll, and his family are harassed by the three billy goats. It was those hairy pigs who were the real jerks of the tale. Of course, no one talks about his side of the story. Parents go on letting their children believe that wolves are evil and pigs are princes.

Once again, the Old Gem Theater is closing the first month of the new year with a classic folktale from its repertoire.
