The Lovereading4Kids comment

Big and bold illustrations portray the title of this collection in no uncertain terms whilst also capturing the big dramas that lie at the heart of these eight favourite nursery stories. Grandmother is dramatically gulped down by the wolf before being equally dramatically rescued by the woodcutter in Little Red Riding Hood, while the three billy goats gruff face a huge, hairy troll in their attempts to cross into the grassy meadow. There’s more eating in other stories as well as a very careless Goldilocks breaks the bear’s furniture before they send her packing. A new look in a big book format filled with some familiar classics.
