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
