You know the story of Goldilocks and the three bears, right? A little girl with blond hair breaks and enters into the three bears' cottage, eats their porridge, sits in their chairs, and sleeps in their beds? And she's a wicked little girl who needs to learn a lesson? That's the story we've all heard, but in Me and You, Anthony Browne tells us a different story. Why did Goldilocks go looking for food and shelter? Why would she go into someone else's house? What were the bears really like?
Fans of Browne's Voices in the Park will love this book. The use of different drawing styles, layouts, and voices results in characters that made an impact on the readers and challenge them to think of an old story in a new way. This is a title that I highly, highly recommend.
