The Three Billy Goats Gruff Lift the Flap Book

The Three Billy Goats Gruff Lift the Flap Fairy Tale

Adapted from the original tale by Stephen Tucker

Illustrated by Nick Sharratt

Published by Macmillan Children's Books

Modernising a classic fairy tale for a young (and fidgety) audience, Stephen Tucker and Nick Sharratt have come up with a winning formula of bold illustrations connected to a bouncy rhyming version of the classic fairy tale. 

You may think you know the tale inside out but are you prepared to meet the hungriest troll in the world? Cooking up plenty of recipe ideas for his favourite food, Goat, the nasty Troll is easily the star of the book. Great pictures and lots of interesting flaps to lift and discover for enquiring toddlers. 

Charlotte's best bit: The Troll's house under the bridge

Daddy's favourite bit: Goat Burgers (which actually made me feel quite hungry)
