Synopsis

A small bear goes for a stroll in the park with his parents, leaving their bowls of porridge cooling on the kitchen table. Meanwhile, a girl with golden hair is hopelessly lost in a big, frightening city when she comes across a house with the door left invitingly open. Inside are three bowls of porridge in the kitchen, three chairs in the living room, and three comfortable-looking beds upstairs, and no one seems to be home . . .

The Bookbag

Yes, Goldilocks is sad because she's chased after her balloon and lost her mum, but it's honestly not too far a leap from that to considering issues of isolation, social exclusion, the nuclear family, the class system, or - taking a nod from Browne's dedication - underdogs in general.
