Rosalind And The Little Deer by Elsa Beskow Floris, £10.99, 3+

Ah the roaring Twenties; the Charleston and gin Collins. But while the grown-ups were having fun, childhood was a much more sedate affair, neatly reflected in this nostalgic book. First published in Sweden in 1924, this fairy story is peppered with eccentric Norse folklore. Can Rosalind save her deer from the king, his cage and pastry platter? Faintly nonsensical twists merely add to the tale’s unique charms.
