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?
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...Someplace 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.
It features 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.
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)
