The Three Bears Paperback – September 23, 1985
"Four- to six-year-olds are sure to enjoy Paul Galdone's interpretation, and they should gain good visual concepts of size and of right to left from the delightful pictures and the use of various type sizes." --School Library Journal
About the Author
Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.

The illustrations have enough detail to make them interesting to look at, although I was hoping for a little more especially in the backgrounds. I enjoyed that the small bear plays with a teddy (how appropriate). Goldilocks looks very traditional with hair ribbon, gold locks and a fancy dress. It's interesting how the bears, who are benign-looking through most of the book, take on a scary and angry appearance when they find their house has been intruded upon, so it's quite easy to see why Goldilocks is scared.
The story is very short. It is written in rhyme and is clever and funny. Anonymous reveals the names of the bears and Goldilocks is renamed Goldenhair. All of the characters are described in full. Goldenhair goes to the bears house because she felt "to rob bears is no sin." This statement may bother some children. Or, perhaps, they will come to realize that Goldenhair did wrong.
