Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Papa Bear puts on funny ears, Mama Bear dons a curly wig, and Baby Bear dresses as a tiger. This can only mean one thing—Halloween. The family goes trick-or-treating, and Baby Bear's bag fills up, because, he says, he's so scary. When the family arrives at a house decorated with cobwebs and skeletons (with a witch hiding in the bushes), it's the bears who get nervous. Still, they go inside, gobble Halloween treats, and break a chair in the living room; and when they hear someone in the house, they run upstairs and dive under the covers. Someone creeping up the stairs casts a frightening shadow. Baby Bear yells, "Someone is a big, bad witch," but children will recognize Goldilocks under the witch's costume and welcome the chance to figure things out before the bears do. Thickly applied acrylics make for sturdy paintings, but the many holiday accoutrements (jack-o'lanterns, costumed friends, Halloween decorations) lighten the pictures. Good fun for story hours, this works as an introduction to fractured fairy tales. Cooper, Ilene

Format: School & Library Binding
This book is hilarious and so much fun to read to your children. It is cleverly written and beautifully illustrated. The story starts off with the three bears getting dressed up to go trick or treating. They visit several of their animal friends before stumbling upon a cottage with a door that is left open. They enter the house, eat the snacks, break a chair, and hide in the bed, only to be scared off when the "witch" that is following them is Goldilocks dressed up for Halloween. Absolutely adorable, my boys loved it!

As a favorite in my former school library I just purchased it again for my new one. Opened the box and read it to 2 classes right away. They loved it! It's perfect for this time of year (October) and also as an example as a fractured fairy tale. The reaction when the face of the witch is revealed is priceless :) Recommended for K's and up especially if they are familiar with Goldilocks and the bears.

Format: School & Library Binding
My 2-year-old son LOVES this book. He begs me to read it over and over again and I hear him reciting to himself when he is alone in his room. I am thrilled whenever my kids get excited about reading but the content of this book is disappointing to me. While the reverse Goldilocks storyline is clever the beginning of the story seems disjointed from the ending.
