Poor Baby Bear gets lost in New York City and ends up in Snooty Towers where he needs immediate rest and refreshment. What’s a bear to do? If only he had paid attention to the maps featured on the end papers! With a contemporary twist, this fractured fairy tale reunites him with an old friend he never thought to see again. This well-developed plot and energetic, creative storytelling rhythm with clever rhythms, sounds (“wobbly,” “whooshy,”“soggy,” “frothy”, “ouchy,” “puttering”) [unpaged], and dynamics team up with silly, and occasionally chaotic, mixed-media illustrations with emotive shaped hand-lettered words that leave the reader laughing. Grandkids (ages 3 & 4) enjoyed it because they were familiar with the original *Goldilocks and the Three Bears*.
