The Rockabilly Goats Gruff by Jeff Crosby-OPTIONAL

Crosby, Jeff. The Rockabilly Goats Gruff. Pgs. 30. Holiday House, 2014. $15.95. PICTURE BOOK.

3 Rockabilly goats are trying to cross the bridge in their rockin’ cars for a gig at Nanny May’s Shimmy Shack. The troll on the bridge, however, is trying to get his lunch and the goats are scaring them off. Will the troll and the goats find a solution or are they at an impasse?

The rhyming text is fun and entertaining. The story is a little hard to buy into, but the complementary pictures are well-done. Readers and young children who enjoy the original story or who are looking for an interactive story will enjoy reading this book. PreK, EL (K-3). OPTIONAL. Reviewer; Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
