Goldilocks and the Three Bears Hardback
by Gerda Muller
When Goldilocks goes to collect flowers in the wood she gets lost and stumbles upon a pretty house in a clearing.
She looks inside and sees a table with three chairs: a big chair, a medium chair and a little chair, and in front of each chair is a steaming bowl of porridge.
The porridge smells so good, and Goldilocks is so hungry, that she opens the door and walks inside.
But this house belongs to three bears: a big daddy bear, a medium mummy bear and a little baby bear -- and they'll be back soon.
This is a beautiful interpretation of a classic story.
Gerda Muller's timeless, intricate illustrations offer wonderful extra detail for children to enjoy.
From the very first page, she includes big, medium and little versions of birds, squirrels, mice, plates, umbrellas, slippers, and more.
Children and parents will notice new things each time.

Review by lquilter
I liked this retelling of the Goldilocks & the Three Bears story. The illustrations were nice, and there was a backstory to Goldlocks that was pretty cool. The various details were rendered sensibly (e.g., porridge was hot, still too hot, and just right; as opposed to, "too hot", "too cold", and "just right", which never made sense), and I liked how the bears were friendly at the end.

Same basic story. The only stray detail i noticed is that this Goldilocks traveled with a circus. I dont even know why the author offered this detail, it didnt change anything from the most popular version of this tale. Strange.
