Kids will love author Kaye Umansky's surprise ending. They'll also love the beautiful color illustrations on every page, rendered by illustrator Chris Fisher in a charming, old-fashioned style that recalls storybooks of an earlier time.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Though readers never catch sight of Goldilocks's blond tresses in this sweet but slight story, she's both its raison d'etre and its deux ex machina. The bear family finally acknowledges that Papa Bear will never get around to fixing the chair ("That naughty Goldilocks broke Baby Bear's chair a very long time ago," Mama Bear chides), so they head to town to buy a new one. The trip prompts Baby Bear to fantasize about a number of ideal seats: dawdling in a stream, for instance, he imagines he's a boisterous buccaneer, and thus needs "a pirate chair... Please, please, please?" Umansky's text plays out realistically, with Baby Bear finding a Pirate chair, "But it was much too scary." The store offers so many choices (including an airplane chair with a propeller and seat belt) that the hero is overwhelmed, and leaves empty-handed. But a surprise awaits on the porch back home, "the most perfect Little Red Bear Chair," a gift of contrition from Goldilocks herself ("Sorry I broke your chair," reads the note). Fisher's restrained but genial watercolor-and-ink pictures subtly capture the ursine clan engaging in some very familiar human family dynamics, while adding some nice humorous asides, such as an impressionistic rendering of Baby Bear spinning a few too many times in the store's revolving door. Any child who has felt that the Goldilocks story comes to an abrupt halt will find that this British team has done a nifty job of tying up the loose ends. Ages 3-6. (Oct.)

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-As this sequel to "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" begins, Baby Bear is asking his father about fixing his chair. Papa Bear announces that they will head to Bear Town to look for a new one, and, as they walk, the youngster comes up with imaginative ideas about the perfect piece of furniture: maybe a Robin Hood chair, a pirate chair, or a king's chair? Alas, none of the seats at the store is quite right-too scratchy, too scary, or too large. At the end of this long and disappointing day, Baby Bear returns home to find a package from Goldilocks; it contains a little red bear chair that is just right. Warm and colorful watercolors are a perfect accompaniment to the narrative. Fisher's addition of two fun-loving mice that share in Baby Bear's journey adds a touch of whimsy to the story. The text moves in, around, and sometimes over the illustrations, making them an integral part of the action. This lighthearted continuation of a well-known tale is just right for storytime or one-on-one sharing.-Catherine Callegari, San Antonio Public Library, TX Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
