Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs

Written and Illustrated by Mo Willems

This is a clever and witty retelling of the classic “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” with a twist that only Mo Willems can deliver. As the three dinosaurs are out, Goldilocks wanders into their house and proceeds to eat their chocolate pudding and completely bypasses their chairs (because they are just too tall). Finally she realizes that this is not a house where bears live, but rather dinosaurs. The “morals” at the end are laugh out loud funny. Younger children will love the bright illustrations and older readers will laugh at the subtle humor. I highly recommend this book.
