5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully presented book with a fun concept., 23 Sep 2012
This review is from: Goldilocks (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There is a wonderful concept behind this book - Allan Ahlberg has taken the story we all know, and then developed some variations. There are The 33 Bears, including teenage bears who don't see anything because they are dawdling in the woods; The Blim, a version set in the future with lots of funny words children will love; and The Furniture, telling a side of the story no one considered before. Finally there's a version with lots of extra characters, and then the story of Goldilocks alone.

There's plenty for children to enjoy, and parents will appreciate the cleverness as well. The stories are short and yet richly told, and would be a joy for bedtime reading.

Added to this is the actual quality of the book, as it includes sections to pull and change, and the illustrations are charming.

As an added bonus, in the middle of the book is an extra small book. The idea is that the town have gone to see the play of the story, and included is the script. Within this little book the charming illustrations, and warm touches of humour continue. My daughter surprised me by reading that book first, and we both loved the detailed pop up within it.

This book would make a wonderful present, and seems suitable for a range of ages - younger children will enjoy having it read to them, whilst older ones will enjoy discovering the little surprises. Plus I also suspect adults will enjoy it too. ;)
