The Lovereading4Kids comment
The best-selling creator of the Pigeon who drives a bus, gives a dark and witty take on a very familiar story. Cooking up steaming bowls of tempting chocolate pudding, and making up nice looking beds, three dinosaurs set up a trap for an unsuspecting little girl…Will she stroll into someone else’s house uninvited? You bet she will! And who’s fault is it all anyway?
This is a new take on an age-old classic that will ensure LOTS of giggles and LOTS of re-readings - a perfect go-to bedtime story.
Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems
This is a hugely entertaining and riotous re-telling of a classic fairy tale from one of the most original and funny voices in children's books today. Have you ever heard the story of Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs? Yes, you heard right - DINOSAURS. Once upon a time, there were three hungry dinosaurs: Papa Dinosaur, Mama Dinosaur and...a Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway. Of course. One day, purely on a whim, they decided to tidy up their house nice and neat, make their beds up all cosy and comfortable, prepare delicious hot chocolate pudding of varying temperatures, place their chairs just so, and go...SOMEWHERE ELSE. Let's be clear, they were definitely NOT setting up a trap for some succulent, poorly supervised little girl called Goldilocks who may wander by...ahem.
With a sense of irony (and humour) as sharp as this dinosaur trio's talons, Willems's retelling is a sure bet for audiences who have moved beyond more gently witty fare. Publishers Weekly
