James Marshall
(1942-1992)

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.
