Goldilocks and the Three Bears by Jim AylesworthThe dynamic team who created the best-selling Gingerbread Man and The Tale of Tricky Fox is back with the beloved classic about a curious little girl who cant quite remember to do what shes told...
Once upon a time, there lived a little girl named Goldilocks, who was very, very good, except that sometimes she forgot to do things that her mother told her to do. Yes she did...
But worse is when she forgets not to do what she is told not to do. For sometimes that can lead to much more serious trouble....like what happened the day of this story. McClintocks art, that is reminscent of 19th Century childrens book art, perfectly compliments Aylesworths playful, original, and very involving rendition of the classic Three Bears story.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
The original version of the tale tells of a badly-behaved old woman who enters the forest home of three bachelor bears whilst they are away. She sits in their chairs, eats some of their porridge , and sleeps in one of their beds. When the bears return and discover her, she wakes up, jumps out of the window, and is never seen again. The second version replaced the old woman with a little girl named Goldilocks, and the third and by far most well-known version replaced the original bear trio with Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear. What was originally a frightening oral tale became a cozy family story with only a hint of menace. The story has elicited various interpretations and has been adapted to film, opera, and other media. In Robert Southey 's version of the tale, three anthropomorphic bears — "a little, small, wee bear, a middle-sized bear, and a great, huge bear" — live together in a house in the woods.
Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Goldilocks. Pretty soon, she came upon a house. She knocked and, when no one answered, she walked right in. At the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of porridge. Goldilocks was hungry. She tasted the porridge from the first bowl.
The team behind The Gingerbread Man sinks their teeth into this traditional but never dull retelling of a classic. McClintock borrows from Tenniel and Caldecott in her intricate ink-and-watercolor illustrations. Goldilocks may have the thick blonde curls and voluminous rose-pink dress of a doll, but her untied shoelaces, fierce eyes and predatory smile suggest a certain willfulness. Aylesworth likewise sums up the young troublemaker, explaining that Goldilocks "was very, very good, except that sometimes she forgot to do things that her mother told her to do. Yes she did.
