The Kingfisher Book of Nursery Tales, retold by Vivan French, illus. by Stephen Lambert, playfully retells eight of the best-known fairy tales, including ""Goldilocks and the Three Bears,"" ""Little Red Riding Hood,"" with charming spot illustrations and full-bleed paintings; each story uses a patterned border at the opening and as a running head next to the title, to differentiate it from the others.
