New Book: The Rockabilly Goats Gruff by Jeff Crosby

The Rockabilly Goats Gruff by Jeff Crosby (Author, Illustrator) was released last week. This is a fun twist on the classic fairy tale. And it's not the only version by this name--see the bottom of this post for another non-related Rockabilly Goats Gruff.

Book description:

Three rockin' billy goats turn a grumpy troll into the biggest rockabilly fan at the honky-tonk, putting a fun twist on the classic fairytale.
The images were gathered from Crosby's website and blog.

Below is Crosby's original concept art. Follow the link to see some of the evolution in more images. Big difference from beginning to end result!


As promised, here's the other version of the tale by the same title, not related to this book. Rockabilly Goats Gruff by Tom Knight from the album The Classroom Boogie has a song by the same name as the new book. It's a kids' song, quite silly and fun, which you can sample on Amazon or other MP3 retailers.
