?What a sweet child,? says a newcomer in town about Goldilocks. ?That?s what you think,? a neighbor replies. For Goldilocks is one of those naughty little girls who does exactly as she pleases?even if that means sampling the three bears? porridge, breaking Baby Bear?s chair, and sleeping in his bed. James Marshall?s offbeat and inventive telling of this familiar tale will enchant readers, young and old. ?A delightfully irreverent retelling of an old favorite is illustrated with delicious humor and contemporary touches.? ?
