A wry retelling of the classic tale about a bold and very particular girl plays out in lighthearted illustrations filled with intricate details.
Once upon a time, a naughty little girl named Goldilocks stuck her nose where it didn t belong. She didn t wonder. She didn t ask. She walked straight into the Three Bears house and made herself at home. "Disgusting and cold " she proclaimed of a bowl of porridge. "Awful " she groaned, sinking into a too-soft chair. "Bullseye " she cried, snuggling up in a bed that was just as right as right could be. And then the bears came back. . . . With humor and warmth, Emma Chichester Clark brings new life to a much-loved fairy tale.
