Summary

Summary

flair for rhythmic language, combined withBarbara McClintock's elegant 19th-century inspired illustrations, make for a fresh, playful version of this classic tale. "At once antique and immediate, this Goldilocks will sassily invite herself onto library shelves everywhere." - School Library Journal, starred review. "A conversational voice, delightfully fussy pictures and a recipe for "Mama Bear's Porridge Cookies" make for a satisfying nursery story." - Publishers Weekly, starred review


Author Notes

Barbara McClintock is a distinguished illustrator and collaborator with Jim Aylesworth who has three times had her works named The New York Times Best Illustrated. She began drawing as a very young child and was later encouraged by the author/illustrator Maurice Sendak. "He told me how to put together a dummy book and suggested I move to New York" - so she did. McClintock lives in Connecticut. She's had her work exhibited at several art galleries. For more information about Barbara McClintock, visit: scholastic.com/tradebooks

Booklist Review

Reviewed with Diane Stanley's Goldie and the Three Bears. PreS-Gr. 1. Is there room for two more versions of Goldilocks? Yes, if it's space for these two. Although as different from each other as peas and pies, both are delightful and will attract their own audience, with some children preferring the traditional story and others gravitating to the fresh and funny version. Although Aylesworth follows the standard telling, he adds decorative touches in the text. McClintock's art is also traditional. Executed in watercolor, sepia ink, and gouache, her pictures have a nodding acquaintance with Tenniel's artwork for Alice, but the Victorian sensibility is interrupted here and there with some humorous details, particularly the expressions on Goldilock's face. Stanley's Goldie is a modern-day kid. She has definite likes and dislikes about food, clothes, and even friends: Jenny is too boring; Alicia is too snobby. One day, Goldie gets off the school bus at the wrong stop and wanders into a strange house. Children may think they know the rest, but in the end, the little bear girl turns out to be just the friend Goldie has been looking for. Stanley's art, so sophisticated in her biographies, is delightfully childlike here, with lots of fun in every scene. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2003 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

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." One day, the girl politely asks permission to pick some flowers, then promptly skips into the forbidden woods. 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. When she sinks into the deep cushions of the "medium-sized mama-bear chair" or crawls on the "great, huge papa-bear bed," she frowns like a guest at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party. But as she devours Baby Bear's porridge and flops into his "just right" bed, she relaxes with a contented grin. The poor bears, styled as an unsuspecting middle-class family, are shocked to discover the break-in and the guilty party. A conversational voice, delightfully fussy pictures and a recipe for "Mama Bear's Porridge Cookies" make for a satisfying nursery story. Ages 2-6. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
