Goldie Locks looks like a haunt and the "Daddy" bear looks like he was hit in the middle of his head with a two by four. The printing is off and makes the characters look bloodshot in some pictures.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Of course, my grandson loves the story, but I would recommend a better illustrated one.

An Old Favorite
More than 25 years ago, I AND my little boy and girl adored this version.They would choose it again and again for bedtime read aloud. Since then I've purchased many additional copies for gifts. I disagree strongly with 'college student'. There is no need to have the text spell out what the pictures so surely communicate...the bears are family and each shows their own personality. The little girl, who wanders into a stranger's house and shows no consideration for their things, is NOT a sweet and innocent character. She is adventurous ( the opening picture of the house in the woods shows it as off by itself...mysterious...),impulsive and mischievous and looks darling portrayed that way. My kids always loved the final stare down between Goldilocks and the bears and the picture of her leaping out the window. I recommend this version highly.Was this review helpful?

A Classic At Its Worst
I was not impressed with Galdone's rendition of this classic tale. The pictures make it seem as though the bears are a family, but the text makes no comment on whether they are a family or not. The pictures many times do not seem to match the text. I found Galdone's illustration of Golidlocks somewhat disturbing, not a sweet little innocent girl, but a odd looking girl with quite peculiar clothing. I have never read of the bed's being to high at the head and feet; and the Middle-sized bear's chair did not look any softer then the great big bear's chair, which was supposedly hard. Do not use this book for to tell the classical tale. There are many good books out there on the Goldilocks and the three bears, this is not one of them.Was this review helpful?
