Product Details


★ “This picture book exposes children to themes such as empathy, kindness, teamwork, and friendship, providing an ideal opportunity for a storytime focused on mindfulness . . . will motivate youngsters to look beyond appearances.” –School Library Journal, starred review

★ ”Zany charm imbues Elya’s deft retelling of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff.’ Rhymes silly and clever weave in Spanish vocabulary words . . . the delightful story ends in an unexpected friendship.” –Publisher’s Weekly, starred review

“A time-honored folktale gets a makeover with the addition of snappy Spanish vocabulary. . .The thoughtful goats in this version of the story find opportunities for empathy and even new friendships when they begin to wonder why the troll is so grumpy. . . An enjoyable addition to any folklore collection, this iteration of the classic story packs visual and linguistic punch.” —Kirkus

“As a read-aloud, this bouncy rhyming story, which smoothly incorporates Spanish words and encourages proper pronunciation, provides a great opportunity to discuss kindness. Ordóñez’s blocky, bright illustrations, composed of rounded shapes in flat swathes of color, add to the cheerful atmosphere.” –Booklist 

“Spanish words and phrases dance agilely throughout Elya’s verses, and each couplet ends in a rhyme that will be predictable for kids comfortable in one, either, or both languages . . . Ordóñez’s pencil, collage, and digital compositions are sleek and playful . . . Tailormade for sharing with a storytime audience of English and Spanish speakers. ” –The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
