Product Details


The frequently distributed buns aren't all that's delicious in this exhilarating suite of variations on a classic.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Full of silly alien words, the tale begs to be read aloud. In other adventures, Goldilocks takes on 33 bears, the furniture (chair, bowl, and bed finally get starring roles), and a host of fairy-tale characters such as Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Pigs. Jessica Ahlberg's fanciful watercolor and ink illustrations sprinkle the pages and are the perfect counterpoint to the text's cheeky humor.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

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.
—Publishers Weekly

The verbal wit, the delicately limned pen and watercolor art with its plenitude of intriguing detail, and clever touches of paper engineering add up to a barrel of fun. Re-reading will ensue.
—Horn Book
