Book Review – Goldilocks and the Six Simple Machines – Lois Wickstrom

I’ve been asked to review many books over the years and these twist on a Fairy Tale books by Lois Wickstrom are delightful.

Lois is so good a putting a twist on old fairytales. This one is a feel-good version of Goldilocks and the three bears. The emphasis is on Goldilocks found the door to the bears home had been left unlocked and that she went inside because she could smell the porridge. This Goldilocks was very clever and fixed things in the house. The bears were glad she came and invited her back anytime. Children can learn that things can be repaired not discarded. In this consumer age – six simple machines – is a valuable lesson. The artwork by Nicole Hehn is childlike in simplicity enhancing the overall effect of the book.

I’m wanting to have all my book reviews up to date in the next week so I can concentrate on NaNoWriMo. This will be an interesting exercise this year as I plan to edit, which is not my strength. I have no desk or printer connected at the moment so will be working on my laptop. This would be lovely if I had a table, but alas, the joys of moving our dining table delivery having been delayed, I am currently working off the kitchen bench. Let’s see how it goes? – Jill
