Goldilocks Returns Is a Hit!  Jun 7, 2008
Goldilocks Returns This is a delightful book! Goldilocks goes back to the scene of the original crime, only to raise more havoc. It can be used to teach multiple literary traits as noted in Using Picture Storybooks to teach literary devices: Recommended Books for Children and Young Adults Volume 3 (Using Picture Books to Teach) What a fun way to learn while you enjoy literature!
Goldilocks Returns  Sep 19, 2005
I read this book to a group of 1-3rd graders. They all loved it.

Goldilocks Returns  Sep 29, 2003
Goldilocks Returns was the sequel to the famous fairytale Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The sequel was al about how Goldilocks felt so bad about what she did that she changed her name and opened a lock service. One day it got too much for her that she decided to pay the three Bears a visit. When she goes to the three Bears houses there was no one there, yet she went in anyway. She immediately started fixing everything that she made wrong, but she went a little too far. I recommend this book because it was fun to read about what happened to the beloved fairytale character. It also teaches you to be careful what you do cause you might regret it, which is all lesson all ages need to learn so I recommend it for everyone.
The Sequel to a Famous Story  Mar 12, 2003
Goldilocks Returns explains the story of what happened after that curious curly-haired girl had trespassed onto the property of the three bears. Of course, she grew up and ended up pinning her curls and opening up a lock shop for a living. However, despite all she has done to try and put it behind her, Goldi can still never forgive herself for going into the bears house all of those years ago. So, fifty years later, Goldi has a plan to try and make things right. Find out what happens in this sequel to one of the most well-known stories ever.
Good idea, but grown-up Goldi is less satisfying  Jun 3, 2002
The idea of telling "the rest of the story" of what happened to Goldilocks and the three bears is a good one, and I picked up the book with high expectations. I'm not saying the book is bad, but I felt sorry for the three bears, I didn't particularly like Goldi after what she did in the three bears' home, and I wished the bears had had a chance to speak up to Goldi to help resolve the issues that began when Goldilocks was a mischievous little girl... Goldilocks as a child was endearing; her antics in the three bears' house was not purposefully selfish or self-centered. Goldi as an adult is rather a disappointment - her attempts to "make it up" to the bears would have been more endearing, if not more amusing, if she had tried to think of what the bears would like, not what she wanted. I liked the story's ending, but felt disappointed in how Goldi and the three bears separated without so much as a word fit in edgewise from the bears. I'm sure kids who enjoyed the original Goldilocks will enjoy this, but I think it would be a good idea to discuss with the kids the idea that making up your mistakes to someone else doesn't always mean doing what you want, but it means trying to communicate with the other person and give something that the person would love - not be miserable with.
