Now Available – The True Story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff: The Troll’s Side of the Story

Cheers, all!

We are all kinds of excited to be presenting a children’s story written by David Reynolds when he was just a young boy, about 9-11 years old. The True Story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff: The Troll’s Side of the Story is the young author’s reinterpretation of the classic Norwegian fairytale, considering how the troll might have seen things differently.

Subtle and charming, bright and playful, The True Story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff: The Troll’s Side of the Story is best suited for adults reading to young children, for early readers, and for all of us children-at-heart. This book is now available in print and Kindle editions! Find your copy in the Problematic Press Shops (CAN and US).

The Troll's Side of the Story

This little nugget from the past is lovingly illustrated by Myles Reichel. Yes, the same Myles Reichel of Uneeda fame. You might also find him at Von Stytch Tattoo & Art Studio/Gallery. This work showcases the gentler side of the punker tattooist, and his work here looks fantastic!

The True Story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff: The Troll’s Side of the Story also includes Sir George Webbe Dasent’s translation of the Norwegian classic. This is the popular tale of the Gruffs’ encounter with a terrible troll, but here, read together with Reynolds’ reinterpretation, it reinforces the message that there are often two sides to a story.

For those of you lucky enough to be in St. John’s, Newfoundland between May 23rd and 25th, you can pick up your copy of The True Story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff: The Troll’s Side of the Story at Sci-Fi on the Rock 8! Both Reynolds and Reichel will be manning the Problematic Press table, so this is a great chance to meet the book’s creators! Be warned, however, that our quantities on-hand are very limited!

Otherwise, copies can be purchased from the Problematic Press Shops (CAN and US). The book can also be found on Amazon.ca as well as Amazon.com. Additionally, wholesale purchases of The True Story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff: The Troll’s Side of the Story can be made through CreateSpace Direct, Ingram, and Baker & Taylor.
