Have you noticed how lots of the language in our story is repeated?
The troll says the same things over and over. All of the goats go trip trip over the bridge. Repeating language is really important when writing traditional tales.
Another important feature is the number 3.
How many bears lived in the house Goldilocks visited?
That's right, 3!
There are 3 Billy Goats Gruff.
And, at the end of the story, the Great Big Billy Goat Gruff rushes at the troll 3 times and he falls down...down...down.
