You Can Teach an Old Picture Book New Tricks...

"Once upon a time, there was this bear. One minute, he was strolling in the woods, all happy-go-lucky....
The next minute, he didn't have a crumb-of-a-clue where he was.
He was one COMPLETELY lost bear."

GOLDILOCKS AND JUST ONE BEAR is a lovely retelling (more of a sequel, really) of the Goldilocks tale by Leigh Hodgkinson with a fresh and fun new take on the story. I absolutely adore the originality of this voice and the use of fanciful language throughout. The surprise twist at the end is just the icing on the cake of this picture book delight! This is a perfect example of how you put a new spin on an age-old tale.


  1. Is this book on your bookshelf? I would love to borrow it! :-)

  2. I got it for Maggie for Christmas, but you can borrow hers!
