Cute retelling of Goldilocks and the three bears.The clothing is set in the Renaissance. Goldilocks is trespassing into the three bears house. Eats their food, sits in their chairs and sleeps in their beds. Then she is found in baby bears bed. She runs away. She comes back and fixes everything she has broke. Teaches children to take responsiblity for their own actions.

Gennady Spirin¿s retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears envisions the story in a Renaissance setting, complete with regal clothing for all ¿ including the three bears. As in many other modern versions of the Goldilocks story, the bears are turned into gentle, non-threatening creatures; meanwhile, Goldilocks is once again the imposing trespasser¿ even if she is only a little girl. Spirin¿s illustrations are pretty remarkable: the pictures of young Goldilocks are so lovingly-rendered that they almost look like photographs. The bears are illustrated in the same style, but the juxtaposition of realistic-looking bears and Renaissance clothing does come across as a bit awkward. Overall, Spirin¿s Goldilocks and the Three Bears is an entertaining take on a classic tale, worth a read once or twice¿ but probably not more than that.Citation:Spirin, Gennady.
