Goldilocks and the Three Bears A Tales Moderne by Steven Guarnaccia


Goldilocks and the Three Bears A Tales Moderne by Steven Guarnaccia

Something is different in this retelling of the classic story of the girl with the golden locks. Goldilocks, as usual, discovers the three bears' house in the woods. She ventures inside and makes herself at home, sitting in the chairs, sampling the meal laid on the table, and taking a nap. But the bears - they're an entirely new breed! Steven Guarnaccia's comical, stylized artwork delivers bears who are hip; they have a sense of style and a love of design. Their 1950s split-level home is filled with cool furniture created by an international crowd of celebrated designers, from Alvar Aalto to Charles and Ray Eames to Isamu Noguchi! This is not a typical cottage in the woods! Children and parents alike will delight in this new edition of the beloved story. And when they look at the endsheets, which provide the name of each decorative object and its creator, they may even pick up a design tip or two.
