Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-One of Goldilocks's qualities-her desire to have things "just right"-is extended into a charming story. "It was hard work finding the perfect hat, a really comfortable sweater, or shoes that didn't pinch her toes. But it was worth the effort, because when Goldie loved something, she loved it with all her heart." What's missing in her life is just the right friend. One day, she gets off the bus at the wrong stop and wanders into a little brick house at the end of a winding path. What she finds there will bring a smile to every child who is looking for a friend who's "not too bossy," "Not too boring," and "Not too snobby or silly or rough." The writing is smooth, concise, and rhythmic. The author's voice peeks through now and then, adding an understated humor that kids will love. "When she had finished the book, Goldie peeked into the next room. It will not surprise you to learn that she found three beds in there." And the pictures are marvelous, with fine lines; soft, glowing colors; and winsome, telling details. Many contemporary retellings of familiar fairy tales are successful in a clever way, but this goes beyond clever to also have real substance. A 24-carat selection for many children, especially those who like things just so.

From Booklist

Reviewed with Jim Aylesworth's Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

PreS-Gr. 1. Is there room for two more versions of Goldilocks? Yes, if it's space for these two. Although as different from each other as peas and pies, both are delightful and will attract their own audience, with some children preferring the traditional story and others gravitating to the fresh and funny version. Although Aylesworth follows the standard telling, he adds decorative touches in the text. McClintock's art is also traditional. Executed in watercolor, sepia ink, and gouache, her pictures have a nodding acquaintance with Tenniel's artwork for Alice, but the Victorian sensibility is interrupted here and there with some humorous details, particularly the expressions on Goldilock's face. Stanley's Goldie is a modern-day kid. She has definite likes and dislikes about food, clothes, and even friends: Jenny is too boring; Alicia is too snobby. One day, Goldie gets off the school bus at the wrong stop and wanders into a strange house. Children may think they know the rest, but in the end, the little bear girl turns out to be just the friend Goldie has been looking for. Stanley's art, so sophisticated in her biographies, is delightfully childlike here, with lots of fun in every scene. Ilene Cooper

Format: Hardcover
I love this book, where we are allowed to sympathize with Goldie, who simply got off at the wrong bus stop, was hungry for her usual afternoon snack, and fell asleep for her usual afternoon nap. Contrasting this story with the traditional story is an excellent language-enrichment activity for children.

My two year old daughter LOVES this book! I checked it out from the library and it was a sad day when we had to return it. The story is so sweet. Much more friendly than the original. It has a wonderful ending. I highly recommend this to all parents of little ones.

My twin 2.5 year olds love when we tell them the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. We took this out of the library and it has been a HUGE hit. The pictures are endearing and engaging and the story charming. It has enough aspects of the original tale to make it familar, yet adds just the right amount of modernity to make it really relatable. My girls are always pointing out details in the pictures and are excited by the happy ending which I also find much more fulfilling than the original. A great deal of humor makes it enjoyable for Mom and Dad to read over and over again too.

I am writting this review for my seven year old sister,Taylor. Here is what she has to say about this book: "I got this from the library at school and I LOVED it! It was a book-sensation celebration. It was a very cute story. I think it's better than the real version of Goldie Locks. In this book Goldie is picky and I usually don't like picky people, but she is picky in a funny, funny way. I love it! I am so happy I found it on amazon.com and now I want to buy it to keep."

Our daughter, now 5, loves reading this book. The resoluion of the story just seemed much more real and satisfying to her that the traditional version. This book and Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity are on heavy bedtime rotation.
One small nitpick though: Alicia, the snobby girl, has two right hands!

A delightful retelling of a children's classic enhanced by vibrant illustrations. Finally you have the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears from Goldie's perspective. Stanley's Goldie is humorous and warm-hearted.

My almost three year old son loves this book! Its such a sweet story that lets your child know that its okay to want things a certain way (the way they like to eat,sleep ect) and that once they find that special friend they will love them with their whole heart. I love this because most often society wants us to conform to this cookie cutter lifestyle and this is saying that its okay to be different and their are people who are just like you.
