Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Hare family—Papa, Mama, andLittle Baby Hare—are enjoying a peacefulday in their rabbit hole until they heara big THUMP outside their door. Thethump is Goldilocks herself, who hasfallen down the rabbit hole after beingchased by the Three Bears.

(I think you know why those bearswere chasing her.)

The Hare family is happy to helpthe girl, who has hurt her foot. But asyou might imagine, Goldie is not a verygood houseguest. She is tough to please,since every chair is too hard, too soft, orotherwise not just right.

(If you were the Hares, you mightagree that Goldilocks is loud, obnoxious,and demanding.)

But when Goldie is finally comfy-cozyin the Hares rabbit hole, how are theyever going to get her to leave?

Margie Palatini and Jack E. Davisbring a hilarious, just-right twist to thenursery classic.

Review:

"What happened to Goldilocks after she fled the three bears' house? According to this very funny fractured fairy tale, she fell down a rabbit hole and into The Man Who Came to Dinner, where she turned into a mop-top Sheridan Whiteside. Having injured her foot in her tumble, Goldilocks must shack up with the well-meaning Hare family until she's mobile again. But the Good Samaritans quickly sour in the face of Goldilocks's diva demands — nabbing prime real estate on the sofa and forcing Little Baby Hare to serve as a living TV antenna. What will it take to make this ungrateful guest say 'Arrivederci'? Both Papa and Mama Hare's ideas only further entrench Goldilocks; clearly, it takes a kid rabbit to get to the heart of the matter. Palatini and Davis, who previously collaborated on Bedhead and Sweet Tooth, again prove that they share the same irreverent wavelength. The zingy prose begs for full-throttled performance ('Watch that tootsie! Don't muss the hair!' crows Goldilocks), and there are plenty of visual laughs in both the Hares' wide-eyed, innocent dismay and Goldilocks' overweening narcissism. Ages 4 — 7. (Feb.)"
