2010 Award
Me and You
( by Anthony Browne, FSG $16.99 Score: )

Here's a new take on the old Goldilocks story. These Three Bears are urban dwellers that find their breakfast porridge too hot. So in true Three Bear tradition they go for a walk. Juxtaposed with the bears, young Goldilocks is shown in multiple frames on alternating facing pages. She runs off in the first sequence, chasing a balloon that she never catches. Instead, she happens upon a house with an open door and the rest is history. There's a lot to look at in the small frames and children can no doubt tell you the story from the pictures. As always, Browne makes lively art that is child-friendly. Browne adds no strange twists here. Goldilocks is a city kid with a hoodie and glasses and looks nothing like the typical folktale charmer. His Three Bears talk about their work and the house as they walk in the park. Their art is more pastel and picturbooky. For the most part, it's a rather straightforward telling of the tale, just set in a more realistic world.
