Goldilocks and The Three Bears

Brett, J. (1987). Goldilocks and The Three Bears. New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons.

Author study

Three bears lived in the forest. They left their home and Goldlocks noticed they weren’t home and let herself right in. She ate their porridge, sat in their chairs, and slept in their beds.


There are so many Goldilocks and The Three Bear stories out there but I think this would be a good fairytale for a younger audience. The text is fairly simple and the illustrations give both Goldilocks and The Three Bears a lot of character.

I really enjoyed this Three Bears story. Brett’s illustrations are fantastic. She depicts the Bears and Goldilocks perfectly. Like always, she uses her borders to give hints to the readers for what will come next. I really love that aspect of her books.

What happens when the bears come home and find Goldilocks in the Little Bears bed?
