Synopsis

Something is different in this retelling of the classic story of the girl with the golden locks. Goldilocks, as usual, discovers the three bears' house in the woods. She ventures inside and makes herself at home, sitting in the chairs, samples the meal laid on the table, and taking a nap. But the bears-they're an entirely new breed! Steven Guarnaccia's comical, stylized artwork delivers bears who are hip; they have a sense of style and a love of design. Their 1950s split-level home is filled with cool furniture created by an international crowd of celebrated designers, from Alvar Aalto to Charles and Ray Eames to Isamu Noguchi!

Children and parents alike will delight in this new edition of the beloved story. And when they look at the endsheets, which provide the name of each decorative object and its creator, they may even pick up a design tip or two. STEVEN GUARNACCIA is an illustrator and designer whose comic and stylized illustrations have appeared in many national and international magazines and newspapers, including the New York Times, Abitare, and House and Garden. Guarnaccia has also designed greeting cards for the Museum of Modern Art, New York and watches for Swatch . He is the author of several books for children and adults. He lives and works in Montclair, New Jersey, with his wife and son. 32 pages of illustrations in full color, 9 x 13"

Papa Bear's chair is a Charles Rennie Mackintosh ladderback ("hard as a rock"), Mama Bear's is an Arne Jacobsen "Egg" chair ("way too soft"), and Baby Bear's is an Eames brothers creation ("but just as she was getting cozy, the chair broke into pieces").
