Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs

by Mo Willems

Published by Balzer + Bray, 2012
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢠢62104182

Ages 6-10

This spoof brings Goldilocks (who looks suspiciously like Trixie of Knuffle Bunny fame) into the home of three dinosaurs: Papa Dinosaur, Mama Dinosaur, and 搒ome other Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway. One day they made their beds, set up their chairs, and 揷ooked three bowls of delicious chocolate pudding at varying temperatures. Then they left, 揳nd were definitely not hiding in the woods waiting for an unsuspecting kid to come by. When a 損oorly supervised little girl named Goldilocks came traipsing along, she smelled the pudding and promptly ate all three bowls, ending up 搒tuffed like one of those delicious chocolate-filled-little-girl-bonbons. The humor in Mo Willems抯 hilarious fractured fairy tale is all in the execution梩he silly asides, the funny details in art and narrative, and the obvious machinations of the dinosaurs in their unsuccessful attempt to get an easy, little-girl-shaped meal.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
