Bilingual Chinese Children's Book: Goldilocks and the Three Bears (Chinese-English)
by Kate Clynes (Author); Louise Daykin (Illustration)
"Stop Goldilocks, go back home, Woods aren't safe when you're all alone!"
But Goldilocks doesn't listen to the warning, she walks through the woods until she comes to the bears' house with the steaming bowls of porridge. Wonderfully retold by Kate Clynes in a unique style with gorgeous cuddly illustrations by Louise Daykin. Kate Clynes adds a modern feeling to the familiar story with the addition of rhyming couplets sprinkled throughout the text (“Hang on Goldilocks, you can’t just roam, and snoop around someone else’s home”). These little rhymes are fun to read aloud and add a freshness (along with some more varied vocabulary) that more traditional versions of the story may lack. Louise Daykin's illustrations are kid-friendly, and include many whimsical details, like bushes shaped like bear's heads, and chairs upholstered wirg paw print fabric. Goldilocks with her rosy cheeks, corckscrew curls, and expressive face, looks like a little girl who often might get into mischief!
An irresistible addition to any collection.
