Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Some stories become favored childhood classics with good reason, such as the tale of Goldilocks. Here, in an abundantly funny retelling, the timehonored drama unfolds. This outrageously frilly, jump-roping Goldilocks skips through the bears’ house, reciting saucy rhymes as she goes. Her wide-eyed glee makes a hilarious contrast with the genteel bear family, and children will love poring over the wonderful visual details, such as the bear-related knickknacks slyly scattered throughout the cottage.

Another outstanding collaboration from Caralyn and Mark Buehner, Goldilocks and the Three Bears is perfect for sharing with children, adults, and fairy-tale collectors alike.

Synopsis:

An ape has escaped from the city zoo! No, its not Curious George. Its another charmer named Marvin, and hes celebrating his fifteenth year of silliness. This book was the very first collaboration for husband-and-wife team Mark and Caralyn Buehner, and their imagination and humor were already on full display. As gigantic gorilla Marvin manages to hide himself from the police on the subway, at the toy store, on the ferry, and at the ball game, the simple text and bold, funny illustrations are just right for this new board-book edition.

Synopsis:

In this inventive take on the traditional Cinderella tale, Fanny Agnes is a sturdy farm girl with a big dream. Someday, she believes, she will marry a prince. When the town mayor announces he is throwing a grand ball, Fanny is convinced her time has come. She puts on her best calico dress and goes out to the garden so that she'll be ready when her fairy godmother arrives. As the seconds tick by, Fanny waits and waits. Finally, she hears a voice. It isn't her fairy godmother-but it is someone who will change her life forever.
