The Three Billy Goats Gruff (1) [Three Billy Goats Gruff]

The Three Billy Goats Gruff (1)

Once upon a time there were three billy goats called Gruff.

One fine day, the three billy goats Gruff set off up the hillside.

They were going to look for some sweet grass to eat so that they could grow fat.

On the way up the hillside, the three billy goats Gruff came to a river.

On the other side of the river was a beautiful meadow.
In the meadow was the finest grass they had ever seen.

There was a wooden bridge over the river.

Under the bridge there lived an ugly troll.

People were afraid to cross the bridge because of the troll.

Ever time he heard footsteps on the bridge, he popped out and gobbled up the person who was trying to cross.

The three billy goats Gruff were very frightened at the thought of the troll.

Yet they longed to eat the sweet grass in the meadow, on the other side of the river.

After a while, the youngest billy goat Gruff said that he would be the first try to cross the bridge.

Trip, trap, trip, trap, went the fooves of the youngest billy goat Gruff on the wooden bridge.

Out popped the troll's ugly head.

He was so ugly that the youngest billy goat Gruff nearly fell down with fright.

" Who's that trip-trapping over my bridge ? " roared the troll.

The youngest billy goat Gruff spoke in a tiny voice.
" It's only me, the littlest billy goat Gruff, " he said.

" I'm going to the meadow to make myself fat. "

" Then I'm coming to gpbble you up, " roared the troll.

" Oh, No ! " please don't gobble me up, " said the youngest billy goat Gruff, in tiny voice.

" I'm far too little and not at all fat. Wait until the second billy goat Gruff comes along. He's much fatter than I am. "

" Very well, " said the troll.
" Be off with you !  I'll wait until the second billy goat Gruff ciomes along. "

So the younest billy goat Gruff crossed the bridge and skipped off into the meadow to eat the sweet grass.

Then, at last, up came to the eldest billy goat Gruff, to try to cross the bridge.

He was a very big billy goat. His bread was long and his horns were almost fully grown.

Trip, trap, trip, trap, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, went the hooves  of the eldest billy goat Gruff on the wooden bridge.

Out popped the troll's ugly head.
He was so ugly that the eldest billy goat Gruff nearly fell down with fright.

But he did not show it. He only stamped his hooves harderーTrip, trap, trip, trap, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG !

" Who's that trip-trapping over my bridge ? " roared the troll.

The eldest billy goat Gruff 's voice was even louder and gruffer than the troll's voice.

" It's me, the biggest billy goat Gruff, " he bellowed.

" Then I'm coming to gobble you up, " roared the troll.

" Oh, No, you are not ! " bellowed the eldest billy goat Gruff.
" I am coming to gobble you up ! "

And he stamped his feet even louder:Trip, trap, trip, trap, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG !

After that, the eldest billy goat Gruff butted the troll with his big horns.
The troll fell off the bridge and into the river.

The ugly troll fell head first into the deep water.
There was a mighty splash and he did not come up again.

So that was the end of the ugly troll.

From that time on, people went over the bridge without fear.

Never again did the troll pop his head out from under the bridge to roar, " Who's that trip-trapping over my bridge ? "

Then the three billy goat Gruff lived happily in the meadow on the hillside.

They ate the sweet grass and they really did get fat.
