Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—In this modernized version of the fairy tale, the bears are a jammin' rock-and-roll group, but they can't seem to draw a crowd. They really need a singer who can hit the high notes. While they're out auditioning new talent, Goldi walks into their house/studio. But this blond youngster bypasses the porridge in favor of the musical gear. Naturally, the bears are outraged when they come home to find a sleeping girl, but once they find out she has pipes of gold, they write a new song, "Too Hot, Too Cold, or Just Right?" and their new band is a hit. This retelling stays committed to the rock-and-roll concept. The text is short, and the pacing is quick, but quite a few of the slang terms could make the book inaccessible for some children. The illustrations, pencil and painted textures combined with Photoshop, are grounded in a golden-brown palette and are reminiscent of concept art created for animated films. Although the pictures are lively and fun, there are a few continuity issues. Most notably, on one page Goldi is wearing Baby Bear's headphones, but after that page they disappear without explanation. The story attempts to appeal to the hipness of rock and roll, but mostly the plot is trite and predictable. Good for kids with an interest in music, but less engaging for others.—Amy Seto Musser, Denver Public Library

Format: Hardcover
Corey Rosen Schwartz and Beth Coulton gave a groovy new twist to a classic fairy tale, writing a story that literally – and literarily - rocks!

In this updated version, the most famous and adorable bear family in the literary world has a rock band, and they’re looking for the perfect lead singer – a soprano – to take their music to a higher level. Could Goldi be the golden voice they need?

Beyond hilariousness, this book is a truly fabulous work of art, in every single aspect. It’s wonderfully written, totally witty and hip, and, if all that wasn’t enough, it is also packed with the most excellent rhyme. Every verse sings, giving the story a unique musical quality that fits the concept perfectly.

Nate Wragg’s illustrations are beautiful, lovely, and extremely cute. Without losing that timeless fairy tale charm - giving each page an enchanting warm and cozy feel -, his style harmonizes a classical sweetness with a swinging upbeat groove.

Every beat is fun and marvelous, making this picture book a real delight for kids - even for the not so little ones (myself included) who have already passed the two digits (long ago).

Goldi Rocks and her furry friends have definitely earned a snug spot in my heart!

Goldi Rocks & The Three Bears is a great story told with rollicking rhyme that entertains my nieces and nephews (ages 3-7) as much as it does me! The illustrations are so fantastic that the three year old "reads it himself" again and again. Highly recommend.

Bought three for all of my grandchildren, and got them signed by one of the authors. Also bought one for my wife's prior place of employment - Blue Ball Elementary School here in Southeastern PA.
Loved Goldie's High-C scream.
