PreS-K—In this picture book series, readers are presented with retellings of classic fairy tales. The Billy Goats Gruff sticks to the traditional story but uses speech bubbles for the characters' dialogue. Goldilocks differs a little in what the child finds fault with in the bears' accommodations, but the original premise holds. The books introduce some new vocabulary for little listeners, and the images are bright, cartoonlike, and accessible. Page layouts vary from spreads to half-pages to vignettes.
VERDICT For libraries looking to add simple fairy-tale retellings for the nursery school set, these would be a decent addition.
