Praise for Moldylocks and the Three Beards:
An Amazon Best Book of 2014 -- Ages 6-8

* "Jones takes 'The Three Bears' for a dizzy spin in this laff-riot series opener.... Being cast against both genre type and publishers' convention, Princess likes 'dirty sneakers, giant bugs, mud puddles, monster trucks, and cheesy pizza' far more than fairies, princesses or anything pink, and she also (for a wonder) has dark skin in the cartoon illustrations.... Fledgling readers will agree with Princess' bemused comment: 'This Land of Fake-Believe is crazy-cakes!'" -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"The story...will have kids guffawing with the silly puns and cheering for the ingenious Princess Pink in this subverted version of the more traditional tale." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
