This is a fun twist on the original story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Baby Bear has grown up and wanders into the big city. He eventually finds an apartment where he takes his time finding the perfect food, chair and bed. When the family returns he is surprised to find the mother of the family is none other than Goldilocks herself! They are happy to see each other and then Bear decides to go back home to the forest. This is a children's picture book that would best be suited for younger children as the story is short and has a simple plot line that they may have heard before with a few changes. The illustrations are colorful and are mixed media. They look both drawn and collaged. They hold the reader’s attention and are good for the younger readers. A teacher could use this book during a unit on fairy tales. They could have students pick a different fairy tale and then tell it from a different character's point of view or write a new fairy tale using the same characters. ( )

Kids will love the humorous pictures and storyline of this twist on the classic story. The story of the little bear reuniting unexpectedly with with Goldilocks when he wanders into the big city and tries to get comfortable in an apartment. ( )

I especially enjoyed the soggy porridge and the noisy chair. And also the Daddy Person's extremely fine mustache. I didn't see the twist coming, but when it arrived, it made the apartment-in-the-city setting all the more satisfying. ( )

Based on the classic story of, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this book is one of the many retold versions that I actually like. Goldilocks and the bear has switched roles. I like this book because of its twist on the original tale. Hodgkinson did a great job with the pictures for they are so colorful and lively. I also like the ending of the book, because a friendship between the two main characters is introduced to the audience. I like this book a lot and am quite surprised it did not receive much recognition. The book is filled with humor and happiness and I believe all who read this tale will love it. ( )
