The Goldilocks Variations, Or, Who's Been Snopperink in My Woodootog?
Random House, Inc.
A classic fairy tale is wittily retold by the celebrated Allan Ahlberg, with charming illustrations by his daughter, Jessica Ahlberg.

Everyone knows what happened when Goldilocks met the three bears. But when she encounters a whopping thirty-three bears, the strange-talking Bliim, or even three little pigs, the stories end a bit differently. Lift the flaps and pull the tabs to join Goldilocks in a hilarious series of adventures, as award-winning storyteller Allan Ahlberg and his daughter, Jessica, put their own stamp on the timeless tale.

Baker & Taylor

The creator of The Jolly Postman returns to the fairy tale world with a fresh take (well, a lot of takes) on the Goldilocks story. Full of moveable parts, and including the script for a play, this is sure to be pored over again and again.
