Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Author(s): Lauren Child & Polly Borland

Classic Fiction

When Goldilocks discovers an intriguing wooden cottage deep in the forest she just can't resist peeping inside. Now why would there be one, two, three of everything? Lauren Child brings her trademark innovative approach to this wonderfully warm and witty retelling of the classic cautionary tale in a second collaboration with award-winning photographer Polly Borland. The cast of characters are played by toys specially created for the book by a world-famous doll maker. They inhabit an enchanting miniature world created by theatre designer Emily Jenkins. The cottage is doll-sized with real turf grown for the roof. The exquisite furniture including the bear's beds, chairs, porridge bowls and tiny spoons are all carved and painted by hand. Polly's original photography brings this extraordinary picture book startlingly to life. First published 2008.
