Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This workmanlike retelling of these three fairy tales breaks no new ground, but its three-in-one format makes it suitable as an introduction to the familiar stories. Miller's computer-generated artwork resembles stills from a retro Saturday morning cartoon. He includes occasional whimsical touches and tongue-in-cheek visual jokes (Papa Bear holds a newspaper with the headline "Wolf is soup!"), but overall, the flat illustrations lack depth and perspective. Oddly, the noses of many characters are in profile while the eyes face front, so the wolf's huffing and puffing is pictured as a lump underneath his muzzle. Although not as rhythmical as the originals, Miller's versions of the stories are nonetheless economically told. Familiar phrases remain intact ("This porridge is too hot!") but the tales' gory details have been minimized as much as possible. The wolf simply burps up the two little pigs he's swallowed and falls through the chimney "into the boiling turnip soup. Yowch!" Before she leaves the three bears' house, Goldilocks helpfully cooks more porridge, mends the chair and helps remake baby bear's bed. This is a serviceable but not distinguished rendering of three old favorites. Ages 3-7. (Apr.)

PreS-K
On the whole, this is an unexceptionable volume, but with a good dollop of eye-catching pictures. It is less than ear-pleasing, though, with graceless prose that lacks the appeal of earlier tellings. Especially disappointing is the pigs' chinny-chin-chin sequence, which has lost its bounce and rhyme: "'Little pig, little pig, let me in!'/'NO, you will only eat me,' said the pig./'Let me in, or I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll bloooooooooow your house down,' said the wolf . . . ." The revisions are just small enough to be moderately surprising. There is a subplot revolving around turnips that ends with the pigs dining on wolf-flavored turnip soup. Goldilocks doesn't run away from the three bears; in fact, she stays long enough to make amends-indeed, to make friends. The cool pastel backgrounds (the pink is too much of a good thing in the first story) host characters that have pleasingly delineated shapes and facial expressions. Humorous touches like the pigs' signs that warn off wolves and a newspaper on the floor of the bears' house declaring, "WOLF IS SOUP!" are entertaining. And the illustrations of the gorge in which the goats meet the troll are, naturally, gorgeous. Overall, Miller's work is a bit upward of OK.

    Her new favorite book.

    My 3 year old daughter loves this book. She has me read it to her over and over again. She already knows all three stories by heart. The classics are always the best.
