The Lovereading4Kids comment

No-one draws naughty children quite as well as Tony Ross, so it’s probably no surprise that his very first picture book was the story of Goldilocks. First published over 40 years ago this has now been reissued by Andersen Press in a lovely new hardback edition. It features lots of familiar Tony Ross touches: Goldilocks has a thick mass of unruly blonde hair and stomps around the bears’ house in jeans and trainers with such energy that you can almost hear the walls rattle. The bears themselves are wonderful characters, particularly the furious father bear. A wonderfully lively retelling distinguished by evidence of Tony Ross’s particular genius. ~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

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.
