Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Retellings of Goldilocks are many, and this father-daughter team increases the tally by seven in this well-designed and very funny offering. Allan Ahlberg opens with a concise traditional version of the story before diving into increasingly chaotic alternate takes: in 'Goldilocks and the 33 Bears,' the girl's getaway is thwarted when she runs into dawdling teenage bears outside; an alien encounter, 'Goldilocks and the Bliim,' has a vocabulary all its own ('Who's been dodderling my spootz?'); and a parody of a children's theater production features audience interaction and a great many dance numbers. Interactive elements are cleverly integrated, and Jessica Ahlberg's prim watercolor cartoons and an overall elegant layout contrast delightfully with the stories' many comedic moments. Ages 5 — up. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
