Goldilocks

By Allan Ahlberg
Illustrated by Jessica Ahlberg

A classic fairy tale is wittily retold by the celebrated Allan Ahlberg, with charming illustrations by his daughter, Jessica Ahlberg.

Everyone knows what happened when Goldilocks met the three bears. But when she encounters a whopping thirty-three bears, a strange-talking Blim, or even three little pigs on her search for porridge, the stories end a bit differently. Lift the flaps and pull the tabs to join Goldilocks in a hilarious series of adventures, as award-winning storyteller Allan Ahlberg and his daughter, Jessica, put their own stamp on a timeless tale.

  • Written by one of Britain's best-loved authors. Allan Ahlberg has written numerous children's classics and won many awards, including the Kate Greenway Medal and the Kurt Maschler Award. This is his first novelty book since the critically acclaimed The Jolly Postman.
  • Exquisitely illustrated and beautifully presented, this book would make a perfect gift.
  • Children will love the unexpected twists to the traditional story.
