This is a hugely entertaining and riotous re-telling of a classic fairytale from one of the most original and funny voices in children's books today. Have you ever heard the story of Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs? Yes, you heard right - Dinosaurs. Once upon a time, there were three hungry dinosaurs: Papa Dinosaur, Mama Dinosaur and...a Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway. Of course. One day, purely on a whim, they decided to tidy up their house nice and neat, make their beds up all cosy and comfortable, prepare delicious hot chocolate pudding of varying temperatures, place their chairs just so, and go...Someplace else. Let's be clear, they were definitely not setting up a trap for some succulent, poorly supervised little girl called Goldilocks who may wander by...ahem. It features a new take on an age-old classic that will ensure lots of giggles and lots of re-readings - a perfect go-to bedtime story.

Publishers Weekly, 2012-07-02 In this sly sendup, Goldilocks (who could be a cousin of Knuffle Bunny's Trixie) ventures into the home of three diabolical dinosaurs. Having cooked up three bowls of chocolate pudding and arranged their house "just so," the two olive-green T. rexes and smaller brown dino lick their lips and make comments suggestive of a plot ("I sure hope no innocent little succulent child happens by our unlocked home"), while the mock-naive narration declares their innocence. They are "definitely not hiding in the woods," peeking fiendishly from the treetops, as "a poorly supervised little girl named Goldilocks came traipsing along." Goldilocks doesn't hesitate to enter the dinos' house or stick her whole head in their food ("who cares about temperature when you've got a big bowl of chocolate pudding? Not her"), and she wises up just in time to give herself, if not the dinosaurs, a happy ending. With a sense of irony (and humor) as sharp as this dinosaur trio's talons, Willems's retelling is a sure bet for audiences who have moved beyond more gently witty fare. Ages 3-7.
