As Goldilocks walks through the forest, she spies a cottage in a clearing. The curious little girl peeks in the window and sees that nobody is home, so she steps inside and takes a look around. What Goldilocks doesn't know is that the cottage belongs to three bears, and they don't like uninvited guests . . .

Roberto Piumini lives and works in his native Italy. He has worked with children as both a teacher and a theater actor/entertainer. He credits these experiences for inspiring the youthful language of his many books. With his crisp and imaginative way of dealing with every kind of subject, he charms his young readers. His award-winning books, for both children and adults, have been translated into many languages.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2–4—These simple retellings are designed for children to read on their own. The stories are cozy and safe. In Hansel and Gretel, for example, the witch gets trapped inside her oven forever instead of being burned alive. Discussion questions, a glossary, and tips to "write your own fairy tale" are appended. Salmaso depicts Goldilocks as a pink-cheeked cherub with rippling blond curls. The bears look more teddy-bearish than fierce and their house is warm and colorful. Cantone's stylized cartoon drawings make Hansel and Gretel rough, bug-eyed, and almost comical. Good introductions for newly independent readers.—Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
