Description



About the Book



A classic fairytale is reimagined through the eyes of comic genius and picture-book phenomenon Willems. Full color.



Book Synopsis



Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs is a new take on the fairy-tale classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears, so funny and so original--it could only come from the brilliant mind of Mo Willems, the author/illustrator of Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and the Elephant and Piggie series.

Once upon a time, there were three hungry Dinosaurs: Papa Dinosaur, Mama Dinosaur . . . and a Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway.

One day--for no particular reason--they decided to tidy up their house, make the beds, and prepare pudding of varying temperatures. And then--for no particular reason--they decided to go . . . someplace else. They were definitely not setting a trap for some succulent, unsupervised little girl.

Definitely not!

This hilarious story is perfect for fans of the Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.

Review Quotes



"Willems has delivered his very best work so far--this is a tasty treat for kids already fluent with the original, and for any fan of funny, and everybody will want to read it again and again and again."--Booklist (starred review)

"With a sense of irony (and humor) 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 (starred review)

Praise for HOORAY FOR AMANDA AND HER ALLIGATOR: "Six and a half short stories make up this expertly paced page-turner about a girl and her toy alligator, laced with the kid-centric humor on which Willems has built his career. "--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for HOORAY FOR AMANDA AND HER ALLIGATOR: "The pacing, word volume and wide trim size are all inviting and encouraging, bringing readers close to the cozy friendship between Amanda and her impatient stuffed friend. "--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A hilariously fractured fairy tale....Top-notch for group storytime"--Kirkus Reviews

"Mo Willems is to our era what Margaret Wise Brown was a half century ago.... Like Brown, Willems has his finger on the pulse of what interests children most. His books are simple, not simplistic; they are clever, witty, various, and surprising."--Boston Globe

"On every page, the text winks broadly at readers, first pointing to and then playing with conventions of folklore, narrative voice, literary foreshadowing, and plain old common sense."--Horn Book (starred review)

"This is pure Mo Willems, from the many visual gags in the cleanly drawn illustrations and the tight, tongue-in-cheek story line to the endpapers .... Readers of all ages will find much to chuckle about in this wacky retelling."--School Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for HOORAY FOR AMANDA AND HER ALLIGATOR: "Amusing and heartwarming, it will leave Willems's fans totally satisfied."--School Library Journal (starred review)

I ordered two of these books for Christmas and when they arrived one was very obviously used. Worn cover and wrinkled pages. I took it back to the store and the clerk agreed with me. I ordered another one and it took almost two weeks to arrive. When it did I realized that the one I had kept from the first order looked used also. It was faded and the paper jacket was worn a bit too. I kept them both since it was too late to do anything about it. I needed them for gifts. Not impressed Target. Used and very obviously used. I don't know if I will do this from Target again. I recommend the book, it's great, but not from Target.
