Goldilocks and just one bear
Hodgkinson, Leigh.
Easy Picture Book HODGKIN

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Who doesn't love a reunion show? Hodgkinson (Limelight Larry) brings together a legendary couple--Baby Bear and Goldilocks--via a clever story that offers few clues as to what the author is up to. "Once upon a time, there was this bear," who wanders out of the woods and ends up in the heart of a noisy, bustling city. Disoriented, the bear stumbles into the penthouse apartment in Snooty Towers, where he finds just the right porridge, chair, and bed before falling asleep. The family is outraged, of course, until the "mommy person" and the bear realize who the other is. Hodgkinson's angular, naif drawing style has just the right amount of satirical nudge for depicting Goldilocks' ascension to the 1% (she's become a stylish blonde matron married to an equally stylish and blonde man with a Mr. Monopoly mustache). Hodgkinson's dry sense of humor is on full display--the first chair Baby Bear tries is "too ouchy," the second "too noisy" (they are, respectively, a cactus and a cat)--and should earn this "Where are they now?" fairy tale many re-reads. Ages 3-up. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
