Reviews

Praise for the first edition:

'Children will relish the myriad small details in the artwork, including the many objects that come in threes; beekeeping stations near the house, balls along the path, piggy banks on the nightstand, bear-shaped chairbacks, bear-themed art on the walls, and bear-head umbrella handles... While there are many versions of this story out there, here's one worth adding to collections.'
- Booklist Online

'Muller's version of the three bears adds a delightful mix of tradition and the modern day... Muller's illustrations are done in an understated color palette with dashes of vivacious reds. The bears' home is wonderfully traditional with a Dutch door, carved wooden chairs, and matching comforters on the beds in different colors but all with a bee motif. No one will wonder why Goldilocks enters and stays. It is all so very inviting and cozy... This is a cheery and slightly modernized version of the traditional story that will be welcome in library collections or as a great bedtime pick.'
