I do appreciate the works of Paul Galdone. I think he does an excellent job of staying true to the folk tale genre in his retellings, using much of the repetition that was part of the oral tradition from which they sprang, and his illustrations give personality to the bears and to Goldilocks. I’m just not sure Houghton Mifflin did them justice in this particular republication. There’s a uniformity to the series that is sweet, and would make them look nice on a shelf all lined up together, but as individual books, the new format detracts from the originals. And they don’t seem especially sturdy for library use. I’d really recommend searching out these stories, by this author, in other editions if you can find them.
