Goldi Rocks and the Three Bears by Corey Rosen Schwartz and Beth Coulton

Goldi Rocks and the Three BearsI am always impressed when someone can redo an old story and make it fresh, while still staying true to the original. This is definitely not an easy task, but the authors of Goldi Rocks and the Three Bears manage to remake this classic story in a fun and appealing way. The story starts out with the three bears and their band trying to figure out why they are not so popular. Eventually, they come to the conclusion that they need a lead singer who can hit the high notes that they cannot, and thus begins their search. Meanwhile, Goldi happens upon their empty house and finds their music studio, which thrills her to no end. She tries out some of the instruments and equipment, but unfortunately takes a tumble and breaks the microphone stand. Then she tries out the headphones, but Mama Bear’s are too tight, Papa’s are too loose, and Baby Bear’s fit her just right (you see where this is going . . .)

Goldi is exhausted from all that grooving, so she decides to take a nap. Meanwhile the three bears are holding auditions to find a lead singer for their band, but to no avail. When they return home, they are surprised by the terrible mess left by Goldi. She is startled awake and screams with a “pitch perfect high C”, and they have found their singer! This book is very clever and definitely a fun version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
