Summary

The can-do heroine from the acclaimed The Little Red Fort returns in this fresh, feminist spin on The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

"Readers will happily discover that trip-trapping to friendship and cooperation is indeed a pie-worthy prize." -- Kirkus Reviews

Ruby's mind is always full of ideas.

One day, she spies some blueberries across the creek and invites her brothers to pick some. Unfortunately, the bridge is blocked by scary Santiago. "I'm the boss, and you can't cross... unless you give me a snack," he demands.

One by one, the brothers scamper across, promising Santiago that the next sibling has a better snack. When at last it's Ruby's turn, she refuses to be bullied and creates her own way to cross the creek.

This modern spin on a classic tale weaves folklore, feminism, STEM, and a Latinx cast into a delightful read-aloud that celebrates creativity and building bridges of friendship and community.
