“In a near-wordless offering, Hayes’s finely detailed pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations cleverly unspool a playful spin on The Three Bears. . . The more closely readers look, the more they’ll find to like.”—Publishers Weekly

“Delivers a clever twist on ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears.”—Jan Gardner, The Boston Globe

“Both Children and adults will delight at this charming retelling of the classic story “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.”—Kidzone, Web supplement of Wild Animal Baby magazine, National Wildlife Federation.
