Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs

Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs
By Mo Willems
Balzer & Bray, c2012. 32 pages. Picture book.

Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs is a fantastic "un-done" fairy tale! The three dinosaurs are Mama, Papa, and "some Dinosaur who happens to be visiting from Norway." Instead of porridge, the dinos cook up some pudding to try to attract children to their home. Goldilocks comes in, as expected, and gorges herself on the yummy treat. After overhearing the dinosaurs cheering their victory, she realizes she's in the wrong story- she's supposed to be at a bear's house, not a dinosaur's! She hightails it on out of there and finds herself with the three bears where she belongs. As always from Mo Willems, this  story is a hysterical read aloud for any age.
