Best known for his George and Martha series, Marshall brought his zaniness to many popular fairy tales near the end of his career. His Goldilocks and the Three Bears received a Caldecott Honor Medal. From personal experience, these books are a great way to introduce fairy tales to three- and four-year-olds. They love the illustrations and the shorter texts.
These books are recommended for all readers.
1987: Marshall emphasizes the theme of "Never talk to strangers" with humor.
1988: A Caldecott Honor Book. Goldilocks is naughty and the bears are charming.

1989: The third pig and the wolf have a showdown. Guess who wins?
1990: Everyone lives happily ever after, except for the witch and stepmother.
1974: An early Marshall project, this is an easy reader book, too.
