Once on a time there were three Billy-goats, who were to go up to the hill-side to make themselves fat, and the name of all three was ‘Gruff’.

On the way up was a bridge over a burn they had to cross; and under the bridge lived a great ugly Troll, with eyes as big as saucers, and a nose as long as a poker.

So first of all came the youngest billy-goat Gruff to cross the bridge.

‘Trip, trap; trip, trap!’ went the bridge.
