The True Story of Goldilocks: A Novelty Book by Agnese Baruzzi, Sandro Natalini

When Mama Bear and Papa Bear invite Goldilocks to stay, they hope that she will be a good influence on their naughty son. But Little Bear doesn’t like this Goody Two-Shoes, and Goldilocks thinks he’s un-BEARable! This humorous peek at what happened before the famous fairy tale began is packed with novelties, including a pop-up Three Bears’ house, that bring the story to life.

There have been many versions of the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears - everything from traditional to ultra modern. Quite often, Goldilocks is presented in the same manner - she's a pretty young miss with blond hair, of course, and perhaps a bit naive. Well, here's a Goldilocks with attitude. With this version we find Goldilocks with pigtails and winning ways. Winning, that is, to Mama Bear who receives a facial and Papa Bear who finds her extremely courteous. On the other hand Baby Bear just thinks, "Who is that Goody Two-Shoes?" Behavior is not Baby's Bear's long suit. When they go out to play he wants Goldie, as he calls her, to play in the mud with him. When she declines, well, you can imagine what a naughty Baby Bear might do. However, good triumphs at last when he agrees to let Goldilocks teach him how to behave himself. . In fact, he soon becomes so very good that he has no time for Goldilocks. What's a bored girl to do? An idea comes to her when she's waiting for the bus to take her home. The True Story of Goldilocks is told with pop-ups, pullouts, and various paper surprises. While recommended for ages 3 and up, we'd suggest perhaps a bit older or at least a youngster who will understand a bit of satire. - Gail Cooke
