    One thought on “Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs

      Oh, this was a hoot. Delightful and so entertaining, and I was a bit deliciously scared, or would have been when younger. The reader/listener is in on all the jokes, more so than anyone else. The front and back inside covers are full of wonderfully amusing alternate titles. My very favorite page was the second to last page, and I might just add it to my quotes: (view spoiler)[ “If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave.”(hide spoiler)] 4 ½ stars

      We love Mo Willems. His books are so humorous, and the illustrations are so clever and fun. We love this snarky version of the classic Goldilocks And The Three Bears story. The narrative is silly, but entertaining and the illustrations are colorful and cartoonish. We enjoyed reading this book together, and our girls loved the endpages with the listing of different titles, like "Goldilocks and the Three Squirrels," "Goldilocks and the Three Clams," "Goldilocks and the Three Red Herring," "Goldilo [...]

      Hilarious! Loved it, loved it, loved it! So witty, so charming. I'm not sure if kids will appreciate all the humor the way adults will (pay careful attention to all the details, especially in the illustrations) but they will still probably get a hoot out of this refreshing take on the traditional Goldilocks tale. I really don't want to say too much about it because the fun is all in the discovery of how the story plays out (you think you know where it's going, but!) So, I will simply recommend t [...]

      Oh for god's sake. YET ANOTHER funny and fantastic and understated and overstated book from Mo Willems. I am beginning to think that if he did an illustrated retelling of, I don't know, The Giving Tree or Twilight or 50 Shades of Gray I would like even THAT.With this book, he had me even before the story began, at endpapers decorated with a hundred scratched-out titles: Goldilocks and the Three Dentists; Goldilocks and the Three Goats.Yup. When you find yourself laughing out loud at the endpaper [...]

      Okay, okay, here I go again proving that I just can't fit in with the rest of the children's librarians because I didn't like this one any more than I liked Knuffle Bunny FreeI reverence Mo Willems, but even a great writer sometimes lays an egg and this to me is his. It tries too hard. It's sort of like something a parent might tell a child if they wanted to retell a classic known story and have the child going "No, Daddy, THAT'S not how it goes". Only it's just not that funny. And I suspect tha [...]

      Once again Mo Willems has a winner in this one! A story both my 5-yr-old and twin 2-yr-olds could get into, the fun pictures and unusual twist to Goldilocks had us all laughing. A solid level 2 reading book, if you're looking for one, or just a great story to read out loud to your children, to ensure early reader enjoyment. I highly recommend this author if you're looking for new books to read to your kids!

      Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary TaleEdwina, The Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was ExtinctDon't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!These are the books that I had read from the creative mind of Mo Willems and I will admit that I had enjoyed almost everything that Mo Willems has written over the years! Well, I just read Mo Willems’ most recent children’s book and that is called “Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs” and it is definitely one story that every children and adult will enjoy for many years!O [...]

      Before you actually read this book, open the front and back cover and indulge yourself in the rejected names of this bookI certainly laughed out loud when I read that "Goldilocks and the three foot-long hoagies" could have been the title of this book, but was X'd out. Read them all because they are hilarious! (Great read aloud for kids (and reptilian creatures) of all ages, they might even start to think of their own funny names for this classic story)Now the story:The story starts out with a ma [...]

      Mo Willems' new spin on the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears does not disappoint! I was so excited to receive my copy in the mail I read it right away, laughing all the way through it! When my 3rd & 4th Grader saw it they begged to have it added to our bedtime reading along with the chapter books in which we are currently engrossed.Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs has the wonderful tongue-in-cheek humor of the Elephant & Piggie books (my favorite of all Willems' work!): when Gold [...]

      If I ever win the lottery, you can bet that my home library will be stocked with every single Willems book. Another amusing retelling with a twist. I'm amused that Golilocks resembles Trixie from Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion. Remember: don't skip the endpapers of a Willems book, there's always at least one reward there, and this time there are many.Library copy.

      (KidLit ED204 category: fairy tale)"Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs" is a version of Goldilocks, retold by Mo Willems. That is almost a guarantee that the book will be humorous and delight children, young and old!Instead of the familiar Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear, the reader is introduced to Papa Dinosaur, Mama Dinosaur and "some other Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway." The dinosaurs appear to be just a touch on the evil side, and Goldilocks is a bit naughty too. The i [...]

      Most people know the story of Goldilocks and the three bears, but did you know that Goldilocks made a slight detour before finding the bears’ house? That adventure took her to the enormous house of three dinosaurs: Papa Dinosaur, Mama Dinosaur, and some other Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway. Before Goldilocks arrived the dinosaurs made three bowls of chocolate pudding at varying temperatures, for no reason at all, and certainly not because they were imagining the delicious tas [...]

      Have I said lately how much I love Mo Willems? If not, or even if I had, let me offer up my love to him here and now. I think Mo is awesome, and from the interviews and readings I have seen with him, he seems to be as awesome of a person as he is a writer.Now on to the picturebook, Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems. Mo takes the classic Goldilocks story and throws it off center. Goldilocks is still a ditzy and self absorbed little girl, but instead of wondering into the home of be [...]

    14. Zaz on said:

      I laughed for 1/2 to 2/3 of the book (I'm crying right now, the look of the dinosaurs). You definitely need to know about the classic story before reading this one and, then, it's candy. I knew only the title when I started it so the story was full of surprises and, after the learning curve, of expectations regarding the narrator. He was really funny, making good comments (not sure kids will pick everything, but it was perfect for me). The art was a little more detailed than in the Pigeon's book [...]

    15. Edward Creter on said:

      Goldilocks and the three bears is a tale as old as, well, the dinosaurs, so why not have three dinos take the place of them bahrs? This tribute/parody of the well-loved fairy tale is fun and funny, and is perfect for kids who have loved Hoodwinked, Ever After and other fairy tale mockeries. Have a gay old time! (to quote Fred Flintstone!)

    16. Samantha Martinez on said:

      Traditional Literature is the oral tradition of telling a story. In the modern world, books are more easily available so we have traditional literature in books. One subgenre of traditional literature is folktales. Folktales are stories of the people. Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems is a folktale. More specifically, this book is a cumulative folktale because whenever a new part of the story is added, it is added to the previous parts of the story. I enjoyed this story because it [...]

      This little gem was SO MUCH FUN to share in story time. No surprise, seeing that Mo Willems created it. Okay, first off instead of the usual Papa, Mama, and Baby, there's Papa, Mama, and some other Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway. I love that Papa sports heavy eyebrows and a mustache (can you say Groucho Marx?). I love that Mama has PINK toenails.Secondly, there is NO PORRIDGE! Instead there is CHOCOLATE PUDDING! And the pudding is a TRAP! The fun just goes on and on.Here is Gol [...]

      I love the sarcasm. So much. This book gets me laughing every time. Thank you Mo Willems for children’s books that appeal to adults.

    19. Jane on said:

      I wish I could give this a 6th star because it was the best. HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVEN FOR ADULTS, the kids won't get all the jokes anyway.

    20. Leslie on said:

      Why is Goldilocks and the Three Bears so popular a story to retell? Because it is a ridiculous story. Some girl barges into a stranger’s home while they are out for a walk, eats their food, breaks their stuff, and invades the most intimate recesses of their home and doesn’t show the least bit of qualms. Colonialist literature at its best. She could have been eaten. More often than not, however, the Bears would forgive her and they all become friends, because they aren’t the uncivilized cre [...]

      Text to TextMany of us are familiar with the fairy-tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs written by Mo Willems is a great book. It is a different version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The book does a great job at changing the characters and keeping the plot. (dinosaurs instead of bears) For a second time, a little girl gets lost into the woods and finds a house. However, this time it is the home of three dinosaurs where she went in to wander. Williems did a [...]

      I’m having trouble thinking of how to start off this review. Perhaps the easiest way is to say I can’t imagine how anything will top this in 2014. It’s my favourite book that Mo Willems has ever written, and that’s saying something. I always laugh during his works, but this tops all of them. The randomness of half the text, the absurdity of it all, and taking a well known tale like Goldilocks and turning it on its head in such a funny way is fantastic. ‘Once upon a time, there were thr [...]

      I think I am in the midst of a Mo Willems reading spree since of my niece although so far I have escaped the Pigeon's bedtime at this point. Whew *wipes forehead* close call although by this time tomorrow that may change and then I will have to start a Mo Willems shelf. After having either watched, read or both most of his works I can now distinguish between his works and tone. So far I have almost no room to complain since he enjoys adding fun, capturing important thoughts in a round-about way [...]

      Oh, dear, this book was funny! I was laughing all the way through this one! The tone was fantastic, there were all kinds of funny things going on, and for me this one was a real winner. But my niece and nephew did not get it! There are times when I read to these children and am completely flabbergasted at how literal and logical they are! Sometimes it's like reading with Mr. Spok or Data from Star Trek!In my nephew's defense, I don't think he's particularly familiar with the story of Goldilocks [...]

      For readers a little bit older than the usual audience for books created by Mo Willems, this hilarious title is one that adults won't mind reading over and over with their youngsters. In a take-off on the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears, three dinosaurs prepare three different bowls of chocolate pudding, arrange three different chairs just so, make up their three beds in an inviting way, and leave the house. Readers who are familiar with the original story will know what's going to happen [...]
