Fiction Picture Book
This retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears attempts to explain many of the questions raised by the original story: Why was Goldilocks wandering the woods alone? What gave her the right to barge into a strange family's house, eat their food, break the furniture, and drool on the sheets? Was she spoiled, curious, or just way too extroverted?
In this picture book, the heroine’s idiosyncrasies can be summed up in one complicated word: compulsive. The golden girl enters the sloppy house of the three bears because she simply has to clean it. When the bears return from their junk food movie extravaganza to find Goldilocks arranging Baby Bear’s books by height, they’re not sure exactly what to do. But when they become enlisted in the girl’s unending cleaning efforts, one thing becomes clear: drastic measures must be taken.
