Edit out Goldilocks and Baby Bear
on 7 November 2014
There are pearls of wisdom in this book, but they are buried within a really annoying narrative about "Goldilocks" getting lessons on writing from "Baby Bear" - and yes, these are the characters in the book: a baby bear on a stage who tells Goldilocks, Big Bad Wolf, and a pig how to write a better book. Baby Bear "grins" constantly, and Goldilocks "shoots looks" at people almost as much. I really wanted to read on, but I couldn't get past chapter 8 because the character interactions were becoming unbearably annoying. I just wish Mr Ingermanson had written a standard how-to book and dispensed with Baby Bear etc.
