Up the Mississippi River from New Orleans, north of
Baton Rouge live three billy goats named Gruff. They want to cross
Thompson's Creek to reach the lush pastures on the other side, but
there's a very scary troll under the bridge who wants to gobble
up those billy goats. Told in Ms. Salley's spirited style, with
vibrant illustrations by Amy Jackson Dixon, this new version of
the Norwegian folktale adds Louisiana spice to an old classic. Watch the legendary storyteller perform a few snippets of "Who's that tripping over my bridge?"
