Hey there! Welcome to "Fairy Tale and Folktale Fridays," a new feature on my blog where I discuss about some fairy tales and folktales I have read throughout the years. This feature was inspired by Chrissi Reads' "Fairy Tale Friday" meme and I was so inspired by those posts that I wanted to do a feature that details my love for fairy tales and folktales!
The Three Billy Goats Gruff
Type: Fairy Tale
Country of Origin: Norway
Main Character Hero or Heroine: Heroes or Heroines (Depending on the story)
The story starts off with three billy goats (a small sized billy goat, a medium sized billy goat and a large sized billy goat) wanting to go to a field to feed on its delicious grass. But, to get to the field, the three billy goats have to cross a bridge. Unfortunately though, the bridge is being guarded by a vicious troll and the troll would threaten anyone who crosses the bridge. When the smallest billy goat gruff crossed the bridge first, the troll threatened to eat the smallest billy goat up. But the smallest billy goat told the troll to not eat him up and wait for the medium sized billy goat to cross the bridge since the middle billy goat is much larger than he is. The troll lets the small billy goat go and the middle billy goat crosses the bridge next. When the troll threatened to eat up the middle billy goat, the middle billy goat told the troll to not eat him up and wait for the biggest billy goat to cross the bridge. So, the troll lets the middle billy goat go and he waits for the biggest billy goat to cross the bridge. When the biggest billy goat crosses the bridge, the troll ends up getting a huge surprise!
1. What would you do if you are dealing with a vicious person?
For me, hopefully I would try to avoid that person at all costs.
2. Do you have any siblings?
I actually have two sisters, an older sister and a younger sister. So, that makes me the middle child of the family!
3. Do you enjoy fairy tales that stars animals?
I most certainly do! Some of my favorites are this one, "The Three Little Pigs" and "Goldilocks and the three Bears!"
