The Lovereading4Kids comment

Best loved, classic nursery stories are vividly brought to life in Tony Ross’s humorous and vigorous illustrations and now together with a CD. Follow the charmingly agile goats as they trip-trott over the bridge having dispatched the hairy troll SPLASH into the river with a well-aimed kick. See how the three little pigs keep their houses safe from the predatory wolf and watch how Little Red-Riding Hood is outwitted by another wolf as she visits her grandma but is saved in the end. Also available is the companion book My Favourite Nursery Rhymes.

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.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
