I absolutely LOVED this book. It's a take-off of the original story, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The big change up? This time it's the bear who is inquisitively searching through someone else's apartment in Snooty Towers to be exact. This story was absolutely hilarious. Readers have an idea from the title that there is a connection to the original tale, and the story itself has striking similarities of course, but there is still a level of surprise at the end as we find out this isn't just any bear. This is the actual baby bear, all grown up and this is Goldilocks' and her husband's apartment. Goldilocks and Baby Bear are finally reunited after all these years, enjoy an evening as friends, and live happily ever after.

This book is most appropriate for grades Kindergarten through 4th and could be used in a lesson about fairy tales or story writing. It could also be used as an introduction to a lesson on Onomatopoeia as there are numerous sound words throughout the book.
