Amazon Review

You think you know the story about Goldilocks and the Three Bears who have an encounter with a wolf? Think again! Mr Wolf and the Three Bears contains all the same traditional characters but has quite a different slant. Mr Wolf is holding a party for everyone to celebrate Baby Bear's birthday. Grandma comes to help, and they prepare lovely eats for each party goer; they even consult the Internet for recipe ideas! The party is ready, and just as Baby Bear arrives, who should barge in but Goldilocks? Pandemonium ensues, but Grandma saves the day as she deals with Goldilocks. This up-to-date book is beautifully written, (and it contains wonderful recipes) and the illustrations are bright and amusing. It is certain to be a hit with young children aged four and above. --Susan Naylor

"Mr Wolf leads the pack ... destined to last and last" --Times Educational Supplement

4.0 out of 5 stars A popular addition to our collection. 8 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son loves the story of Mr Wolves pancakes so I we bought him this for Christmas. He loves it although i don't actually like this story as much as the pancakes one.

The supplier packaged the book well and it arrived promptly, great pictures and a funny little twist... it's implied that they eat goldilocks in a pie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bear-faced laughs 8 May 2006
Another gem from Jan Fearnley. Mr Wolf is having a birthday party for Baby Bear. He and Grandma Wolf spend ages preparing delicious food (there's a real recipe for Chocolate Huff Puffs) and getting ready. But when the Three Bears arrive, they bring an uninvited guest - Goldilocks - who is really obnoxious and does everything to try to spoil the party. Poor Mr Wolf! However, Grandma Wolf saves the day. Adults will immediately understand the ending, young children may not, but it doesn't matter. Horrid Goldilocks has gone and the party is saved. Highly recommend this book to Mr Wolf fans and others. It's surprisingly difficult to get hold of, for some reason, and why doesn't Amazon have a picture of the front cover?

This book is really good fun! Both for adults and children, turning the familiar story of Mr Wolf and the Three Bears in a contemporary fairy tell. A Must Have!
