Reviews

"this mixed-up story is a new take on the classic fairy tale."--Kirkus Reviews

"The real treat here is the fairy tale forest and its various nods to classic stories: the three little pigs have their own home improvement show on HoGTV, Mulan teaches kung fu lessons, and Scheherazade leads the library's storytime. . . . Sevilla's cartoonishly stylish black and white illustrations add a modern flair to classic references." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books


"Irreverently told from Bobby's and Goldilocks's alternating viewpoints, the story moves quickly and will be particularly appreciated by fans of other fairy-tale reimaginings . . . Independent readers who like their fairy-tale fun with a dash of sass will be pleased by Freeman's new offering."--School Library Journal

"Chapter narration switches between Goldilocks and Bobby, with each butting into the other's chapter via debut illustrator Sevilla's lively cartoons and amusing commentary. Clever references to other fairy tales and modern twists, as when Goldilocks inspires Mama Bear to get Papa and Bobby to do more housework, further enhance this delightful romp."--Publishers Weekly
