More details

This popular tale is about what happened to three billy goats -a big billy goat, a medium-sized billy goat, and a little billy goatwhen they wanted to cross a bridge to eat some juicy green grass on the other side of the river, and met a terrible ogre who wouldn’t let them across. Thanks to their quick thinking, they trick him and finally reach their objective.

This story shows how intelligence and ingenuity are more important than strength. In “The three billy goats”, readers will discover an entertaining game of sizes, numbers and sounds, as well as a typographical game, playing with words and letters. The illustrations are very humorous, with characters whose faces and attitudes are highly expressive. KALANDRAKA has published another version of this picture book for the Makakiños collection, adapted to the SPC pictogram code for children with intellectual disabilities.
