Goldilocks and the Three Bears, A Tale Moderne
( by Steven Guarnaccia, Abrams Books $18.95 Score: )

These "hip" bears live in split-level home furnished in mid- century style. The story is the same, but the look is totally a la Eames and Noguchi. Kids might like to find all the ways that this telling is different or the same as the original. Chances are they will quickly realize that these bears were going to eat chili rather than porridge. But then, one must suspect that the artist has never had chili, since the bowls are filled with a green liquid. O.K. I am being literal. So maybe it is a green chili. But as one who loved the Arne Jacobsen "Egg" chair, it would never be described as 'way too soft' by anyone. That said, if you like to mix art history with your folktales, this is for you. From the creator of The Three Little Pigs, An Architectural Tale, also for art lovers.
