What if Goldilocks was held accountable for her actions?

In this graphic retelling of the fairy tale "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," author/illustrator Bee Waeland reimagines the story of a self-involved little girl who commits a crime and is arrested for breaking and entering. Having tracked deer poo into the Bear family’s house, broken a number of things, eaten all their porridge and fallen asleep in Baby Bear's bed, the family comes home and calls the authorities. Told without words, readers of all ages will delight in this hilarious and vibrant twist on the classic.

Editorial Reviews

“An entertaining lap read for younger readers, the wordless story providing an opportunity for child readers to speculate on the events of the story...while enjoying the ridiculous escapades of a familiar little burglar finally given her just desserts. Recommended.”
