Many years have passed since Goldilocks caused chaos at the Bears' house in the woods, but what happens when Little Bear as was wanders out of his fairytale and into the big city where Goldilocks now lives? Awarding-winning artist and animator Leigh Hodgkinson is the creator of this funny and clever fractured fairytale based on the familiar story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Goldilocks is now grown up with a family and a rather smart apartment, so how will she react to coming home and finding that a very lost bear has been scoffing porridge, breaking chairs and sleeping in beds? Will she be cross, or is finally time to make amends?

I originally saw this on CBeebies book at bedtime. It takes a well worn story and puts a new twist on it

Funny illustrations and it’s so funny to reimagine Goldilocks all grown up and living in a fancy penthouse in the big apple!

I do feel a bit sorry for the bear in the end

As my twins love the story of Goldilocks, this was a natural follow-on. It tells the tale of grown-up baby bear, los in the city, stumbling upon grown-up goldilocks rather posh apartment. The bears attempts to find some porridge and a comfy chair and bed left us all laughing out loud - my children particularly liked him trying to get comfy on a cactus! A new favourite for us!

This was a very enjoyable book and we all enjoyed it. It starts off about a bear who find himself in the city looking for somewhere to rest. He then find a house and the 'porridge' isn't right and the 'chairs' aren't right and then he finds the 'beds'. There is a great twist at the end that made us all laugh. My boys favourite part is the ending, and my girl loved the illustrations.
