DEEP IN THE FOREST by Brinton--Illus. Turkle
Kirkus Star


Email this review


In the glowing bronze with which Turkle so often signifies hearthside family warmth, he pulls off here a wordless switch on ""Goldilocks"" that will doubly amuse children acquainted with the original. The setting is a momentarily unoccupied but homey early American cabin, the invader a bear cub who samples the cereal in three bowls and devours baby's, tries three chairs and breaks the small rocker, jumps and tosses feathers from the two big beds and falls asleep in the third. The family returns; a fat, ringletted goldilocks howls unattractively at the damage; the bear is discovered; and like the real Goldilocks he runs away home to his own family. Impish, like that most inviting cub who peers out from the front cover.
