This is beautiful book which plays very cleverly on the Goldilocks story.
My grandson who is 5,loves the humour in the stories and the tabs to pull but most of all he loved the Bliim and was very intrigued by the idea of making up a new language, since reading it we have been making up silly (Bliim) words for everyday objects. As an adult, I really appreciate how Allan Ahlberg can write a fun entertaining story, which also introduces children to the idea of creativity. His other book The Pencil had the same effect as Oliver was fascinated by the idea, that what the pencil drew, became part of the story.
Reading this book also sent us straight to the bakery afterwards, the repeated message 'Bears Love Buns' was too much for us. We loved the book,we loved the buns.
