Description

This is a perfect first book of stories for a young child. Old favourites such as "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" and "The Gingerbread Man" are told by award winning author Geraldine McCaughrean in her own inimitable style. There is plenty of fun and humor in the re-tellings, without losing sight of the traditional shape and feel of the original stories. The illustrations by Ruby Green are a delight - finely detailed and beautifully coloured.show more
