This wordless picture book plays with our assumptions about family.

What do we think we see as we turn the pages and how is the ending not at all what we expected? This fractured retelling of the Goldilocks fairy tale provides a perfect format for thinking about story-telling and how families can be different—and how they are the same.

Enjoy a cozy evening with the sweetest family you’ll find between the pages of a book.

Publishers Weekly

“Alexander’s illustrations charm with their precisely rendered details—the soft shag of fur, the tilted noses alert to delicious smells, the crumbs and soup-spattered bowls that signal a meal deeply enjoyed—in this quiet retelling.”—Publishers Weekly


“[A] twist on the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears. . . . this take offers an engaging celebration of what it means to be family.”—Booklist
