Author and narrator Mac Barnett completely charms in this delightful fairy-tale retelling. Barnett is clearly having a great time relating the story of a hungry troll who waits for tasty morsels to cross the bridge over his head. Young listeners will giggle at Barnett's growly voice for the troll, who rhymes hopefully about a goat flambé with candied yams and a goat clam bake--with goat, not clams. And they'll root for the three goat brothers who try to trick the troll. Jaunty musical interludes and understated sound effects highlight the story's light touch and enhance the mood. Seek out the picture book to appreciate Jon Klassen's illustrations, but they're not necessary to fully enjoy this winning audio presentation.
