Most people will know about Goldilocks and the three bears. This book is a glorious collection of variations on the story. Beautifully illustrated by Jessica Ahlberg in watercolour with pull tabs and includes a miniature book too.

Really it is not for small hands. Unless they are the hands of small children who have been trained to respect books. Nor is it for adults who have sadly not been taught how to handle books properly. It should be looked at carefully  – and will give years of pleasure if the tabs aren’t roughly used or the miniature book badly replaced in its small pocket. The pages are not of the board-book type, (though slightly thicker than normal),so without care it could become damaged quite easily.

It is a beautiful little pop-up / tab book to be treasured.
