This story about how Goldilocks is sets out to find a new place where "everything is just right" is a great rhyming text. It has bright illustrations that paint a funny and meaningful story about how feelings can lead someone astray at times when one is over-reacting just like the girl in the story. ( )

Goldilocks is sick of her mom's overly strict expectations, so she jets off to find herself a new planet to live on. Well, sure enough, none of the planets is "just right" - except for Mars. Silly story told in rhyme with vivid painted illustrations.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525469729, Hardcover)

Goldilocks is fed up with chores and homework&150can't a girl have any fun&150so she builds a spaceship and blasts off for the adventure of her life. After touring all the planets (and finding something wrong with each of them), she finally lands on Mars and is soon ringing the doorbell of a Martian house. You guessed it&150no one's home, but some tasty alien stew is cooling on the table. After a little nap and a narrow escape from the returned occupants, Goldilocks heads for Earth, which suddenly feels . . . just right after all.

With a terrific rhyming text that's great fun for out-loud reading, this bright picture book offers a wacky twist on an old favorite.
