The Lovereading4Kids comment

Just the right size for little hands, this board book provides a perfect first introduction to a much-loved fairy tale and sturdy side tabs cleverly tell the story in short-hand via images of a bowl of porridge, a chair, a bed, baby bear crying and Goldilocks. In jeans and boots Goldilocks is a thoroughly modern heroine while the bears are stylishly fogeyish in tweeds and fur, their anger at the cheeky little girl both funny and satisfyingly scary. As ever, Tony Ross’s illustrations are full of vigour and character and this is sure to be a favourite and the free audio version, available via a QR code, is an added bonus. ~ Andrea Reece


Goldilocks and the Three Bears by Tony Ross

Goldilocks is walking through the woods one day when she smells some delicious porridge...This sturdy board book contains an abridged version of the classic fairy tale and is great for sharing with the very youngest of children. Enjoy Tony Ross' bright illustrations as you follow the adventures of Goldilocks and find out what happens when the three bears come home from their walk!

In the same series: Jack and the Beanstalk


A lovely re-telling of the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears story... Tony Ross

Born in 1938 in Wandsworth, South London, Tony Ross never though about a career in art, but says he fell into it after his dream of being a cowboy disintegrated when a letter he wrote to John Wayne was never replied to.

After Liverpool College of Art, Tony became an art director at an Advertising Agency but after a particularly bad day in the office he gave up his job to go into teaching at Manchester Polytechnic.

His first book was published in 1976 and as well as his own, he has illustrated over 1000 books for authors such as Roald Dahl, David Walliams, Paula Danziger and Michael Palin, which are published all over the world. His series of books written with Jeanne Willis featuring the extra terrestrial teacher, Dr Xargle, has established a huge following of fans. As has his fantastic and fun illustrations in the Horrid Henry series. A TV adaptation of his much-loved Little Princess series is currently showing on Channel 5’s Milkshake.
