Summary

The Hare family--Papa, Mama, andLittle Baby Hare--are enjoying a peacefulday in their rabbit hole until they heara big THUMP outside their door. Thethump is Goldilocks herself, who hasfallen down the rabbit hole after beingchased by the Three Bears.

(I think you know why those bearswere chasing her.)

The Hare family is happy to helpthe girl, who has hurt her foot. But asyou might imagine, Goldie is not a verygood houseguest. She is tough to please,since every chair is too hard, too soft, orotherwise not just right.

(If you were the Hares, you mightagree that Goldilocks is loud, obnoxious,and demanding.)

But when Goldie is finally comfy-cozyin the Hares' rabbit hole, how are theyever going to get her to leave?

Margie Palatini and Jack E. Davisbring a hilarious, just-right twist to thenursery classic.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Palatini, imagining what might have happened to Goldilocks following her bear adventure, suggests that she tripped into a rabbit hole, injuring her foot. The three Hares (Papa, Mama, and Baby, aka Bunny) try to be hospitable, but the obstreperous Goldie ensconces herself on their sofa, demanding pillows, blankets, food, and entertainment. (Bunny is instructed to stand, ears just so, for better television reception.) The Hares try to dislodge her (serving veggie snacks and summoning a skunk) to no avail until Bunny speed-dials the Bears. Davis' hilarious, cartoon-style art portrays Goldie at her obnoxious best screaming, drooling, and sneezing on everyone and the ending (a surprise visit from another blond, seeking a white rabbit) prompts Papa to action. A few jokes seem geared more to adults than kids ( Da Bears and Toss me some arugula! ), but any child who is familiar with the original will appreciate this send-up. Perfect for story hours or lap-sits, this can be shared with fans of Mary Jane Auch's poultry series (Peeping Beauty, 1993).--Weisman, Kay Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "What happened to Goldilocks after she fled the three bears' house? According to this very funny fractured fairy tale, she fell down a rabbit hole and into The Man Who Came to Dinner, where she turned into a mop-top Sheridan Whiteside. Having injured her foot in her tumble, Goldilocks must shack up with the well-meaning Hare family until she's mobile again. But the Good Samaritans quickly sour in the face of Goldilocks's diva demands-nabbing prime real estate on the sofa and forcing Little Baby Hare to serve as a living TV antenna. What will it take to make this ungrateful guest say "Arrivederci"? Both Papa and Mama Hare's ideas only further entrench Goldilocks; clearly, it takes a kid rabbit to get to the heart of the matter. Palatini and Davis, who previously collaborated on Bedhead and Sweet Tooth, again prove that they share the same irreverent wavelength. The zingy prose begs for full-throttled performance ("Watch that tootsie! Don't muss the hair!" crows Goldilocks), and there are plenty of visual laughs in both the Hares' wide-eyed, innocent dismay and Goldilocks' overweening narcissism. Ages 4-7. (Feb.)
