A little girl walking in the woods finds the house of the three bears and helps herself to their belongings.
Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott FordThis is an adaptation of Robert Southey's familiar, "The Story of the Three Bears." In this version, it is Great, Huge Bear, Middle-sized Bear and Small, Wee Bear who go for a walk in the woods while their breakfast porridge cools. They are good Bears, who do not suspect others, so they leave their door unlocked. The little girl comes in and tastes the porridge. She eats all of Small, Wee Bear's breakfast. Then she tries the chairs and finally sits in the chair of Small, Wee Bear until it breaks. Finally, she tries the three beds and, finding the bed of Small, Wee Bear just right, she falls asleep. Upon returning home the bears are upset to discover that someone is in their home. The little girl is startled by the bears. She wakes up and tumbles out the window to run home. The Bears clean up and live happily ever after. It is pointed out that the girl is not good or else she would not have presumed to make herself at home without asking permission. The large type, sturdy book is illustrated with a trio of personable bears.
