The History Behind the Story of Goldilocks
A little girl named Goldilocks, goes for a walk in the forest and comes upon a house where she enters and finds to her delight three bowls of porridge. The first one she tastes is too hot, the next too cold but the third one just right so she eats it all up. Goldilocks finds the three different size chairs where she tries them out and finds the first one too hard, the next too soft, and then the little one just right but it breaks when she sits in it. As she wonders in the home she finds three beds and tries them out. The first bed is too hard, the next too soft but the third is just right and she curls up and falls asleep.
The team behind The Gingerbread Man sinks their teeth into this traditional but never dull retelling of a classic. McClintock borrows from Tenniel and Caldecott in her intricate ink-and-watercolor illustrations. Goldilocks may have the thick blonde curls and voluminous rose-pink dress of a doll, but her untied shoelaces, fierce eyes and predatory smile suggest a certain willfulness. Aylesworth likewise sums up the young troublemaker, explaining that Goldilocks "was very, very good, except that sometimes she forgot to do things that her mother told her to do. Yes she did. She arrives at the back door of a quaint, ivy-covered stone house just as the Three Bears, dressed for a country stroll, are sauntering out the front. As the girl explores the cottage, her expressions range from absolute disgust to pure joy.
