This book is great, the children I look after love it and it tells the story of Goldilocks all grown up revisiting the three bears. It is good rescource to encourage children to think of alternative endings to stories, supporting early years development.
A must for all early years settings, kids will love it and adults too.

illustrations are very nice. the story is okay too. Goldilocks is all grown up and feeling guilty for what she did to the three bears home. she even changes her name so it isn't Goldilocks anymore. she goes to the three bears cottage with an idea of changing their porridge to more tasty bars and refurnishing their home with more comfy chairs and beddings. she sprays perfume and adds decorations to the house. she does it all in a hurry. the three bears come home to find her finishing up and rushing out. they are unable to sleep that night. they were apparently happier with their previous set up. and of course they liked their porridge too. goldilocks is oblivious of this till the end. and as the three bears set off for a walk the next day another girl is seen peeking into their home. that's the ending. it is okay. I would have preferred the story line to hold a moral value. I feel it is just grown goldilocks barging into their home and fixing it the way she thinks is more comfortable. its an okay story for a child I suppose. but at the end of the day I think it lacks a take home message for kids. but the illustrations are simply beautiful.

Once you know the story it is always refreshing to find that someone has taken the story into the future. A very interesting take, a bit beyond the 5 year olds I bought it for but very suited to those a little older who know the story intimately.

My class of 7 year olds really enjoyed this story. It's a difficult concept for younger children as Goldilocks is grown up and revisits- but all children love twists on classic stories and rhymes

good for children )though I think they will need to know the Goldilocks original and fun for adults to read to children, too
