Description
Some stories become favored childhood classics with good reason, such as the tale of Goldilocks. Here, in an abundantly funny retelling, the timehonored drama unfolds. This outrageously frilly, jump-roping Goldilocks skips through the bears' house, reciting saucy rhymes as she goes. Her wide-eyed glee makes a hilarious contrast with the genteel bear family, and children will love poring over the wonderful visual details, such as the bear-related knickknacks slyly scattered throughout the cottage.

Another outstanding collaboration from Caralyn and Mark Buehner, "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" is perfect for sharing with children, adults, and fairy-tale collectors alike.

Praise For Goldilocks and the Three Bears

“The Buehners retell the old familiar tale with a jump-roping, rhyme-spouting Goldilocks. Buehner’s homey illustrations perfectly capture the facial expressions of the characters, and lend a particular kind of mischief to Goldilocks. Cute….” —Kirkus Reviews
