Friday Favorites

Goatilocks and the Three Bears by Erica S. Perl, illustrated by Arthur Howard is a terrific new Goldilocks and the Three Bears variant.  I simply love this version.  You know what goats do, right? Yes, they eat a lot of different stuff.  So this is no regular telling, Goatilocks eats her way through the story.  
The watercolor art is delightful, fresh and amusing. Howard is known for the art in the Cynthia Rylant Mr. Putter and Tabby series, and tons more books.  
This portrayal of the 3 Bears will lend itself very well to comparing and contrasting to the original and other versions.  
I'll recommend this to teachers, parents, and children.  And I'm going to feature it in my outreach next month.
