"Once upon a time, there lived a little girl named Goldilocks, who was very, very good, except that sometimes she forgot to do things that her mother told her to do. Yes she did... " But worse is when she forget's not to do what she is told not to do. For sometimes that can lead to much more serious trouble....like what happened the day of this story. McClintock's art, that is reminscent of 19th Century children's book art, perfectly compliments Aylesworth's playful, original, and very involving rendition of the classic Three Bears story.

I absolutely love this version of Goldilocks. The gorgeous illustrations and the intelligently written story, with lots of words that might be unfamiliar to a small child (but will certainly help increase their vocabulary), lots of humor, in both the prose and the illustrations, make this book a treasure. I've purchased other books by this author/illustrator duo and they are similarly wonderful, although this one is my personal favorite. My 4 year old granddaughter frequently requests this book at story time. Makes a great gift.
This is my absolute favorite version of this classic tale. It brings up all the aspects that most ignore but are very important when reading it to preschoolers. Things like how it is not showing good manners to eat someone else's food without asking and you should never snoop around someones house especially when you were not invited. Also, it points out that Golidlock's does not listen to her mother and that could have been dangerous; you should never run off by yourself or go into someone's house you don't know. I also love the Mama Bear's Porridge Cookie recipe on the back. I make them every year with my preschool class. It's longer then most, but the story and illustrations are worth it.
Want my grandaughter familiar with story's like this! Service great! Book I great shape! Love it, but most of all, my grandaughter loves me reading this book to her! Thank you!
