Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'"A fresh retelling of the familiar three bears nursery tale. Galdone presents a mischievous, impulsive Goldilocks minus a front tooth and the usual prettiness that has conventionally characterized her. The humorous, representational illustrations help children picture the desirable home and family life of the three bears. The initial double-page spread, which shows the father bear pushing the youngest family member in a swing while the mother proudly watches at the door of their log cabin home, is especially pleasing. Another realistic touch, the teddy bear of the Little Wee Bear which experiences the same mishandling as a real child's toy, will also enable children to better relate to the story. Four- to six-year-olds are sure to enjoy Paul Galdone's interpretation, and they should gain good visual concepts of size and of right to left from the delightful pictures and the use of various type sizes."—School Library Journal'

Synopsis:

This familiar nursery tale features a warmly appealing bear family and a naughty, gap-toothed Goldilocks.

About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
