Once upon a time, there lived three billy
goat brothers. Their names were Little Billy,
Middle Billy, and Big Billy.

2

One day, they decided to cross the bridge 3
to eat the sweet grass on the other side.

There was only one problem. A mean troll
lived under it.

4

Clomp, clomp, clomp! Little Billy started 5
across the bridge. Then he heard a cranky
voice.

“Stop there! I am going to eat you up!”
yelled Troll.

6

“Wait for my brother. He is bigger and much 7
more delicious than I!” cried Little Billy.

“What a fine idea,” said Troll, licking his lips.
And with that, Little Billy crossed the bridge.

8

Clomp, clomp, clomp! Middle Billy 9

started across the bridge. Then he heard a
cranky voice.

“Stop there! I am going to eat you up!”
yelled Troll.

10

“Wait for my brother. He is bigger and much 11
more delicious than I!” cried Middle Billy.

“What a fine idea,” said Troll, licking his lips.
And with that, Middle Billy crossed the bridge.

12

Clomp, clomp, clomp! Big Billy 13

started across the bridge. Then he heard a

cranky voice.

“Stop there! I am going to eat you up!”
yelled Troll.
“OK,” said Big Billy, for he had a
sneaky plan.

14

When Troll climbed up on the bridge, 15
Big Billy rammed him so hard that he fell
into the water with a giant splash!

After that, the three brothers crossed the
bridge whenever they liked. And, my,
the sweet green grass was delicious!
