"Bright primary colors, simple shapes, and carefree lines provide a lighthearted silliness well-matched with the rhyme, so that when three passing brown bears walk into Goldilocks’ empty home, there’s no guile involved...an amusing read-aloud and good for a game of spot-the-screwdriver. A cute, zany retelling." —Kirkus Reviews
"In this funny STEM-themed fairy tale...kids will discover the power of teamwork! Readers will love seeing how the three bears help tweak Goldilock's inventions, only to wear themselves out and fall asleep in Goldilocks' bed before she comes home. With peppy rhyming text and colorful illustrations, this is a twisted fairy tale that's perfect for young tinkerers." —A Mighty Girl

Goldilocks is an inventor with inventor's block. To clear her mind, she takes a walk. Coincidentally, a very smart Papa Bear, Mama Bear, and Baby Bear also take a walk, and they find a cute little bungalow with almost-right inventions. Can they help make the inventions just right?
