A graphic wordless retelling of the classic "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" with a twist: Goldilocks is held accountable for her actions.
What if Goldilocks was held accountable for her actions?
In this graphic retelling of the fairy tale "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," author/illustrator Bee Waeland reimagines the story of a self-involved little girl who commits a crime and is arrested for breaking and entering. Having tracked deer poo into the Bear family’s house, broken a number of things, eaten all their porridge and fallen asleep in Baby Bear's bed, the family comes home and calls the authorities. Told without words, readers of all ages will delight in this hilarious and vibrant twist on the classic.
