From Library Staff

Jan Brett is another favorite picture book author/illustrator with her super detailed and beautiful artwork. Her newest book doesn't disappoint with a vivid undersea world to explore along with the mermaid.

This is a fantastic book re-telling the story of Golidie Locks and the Three Bears using a little mermaid and octopus family instead. The illustrations are mesmerizing! My 5 year old was a huge fan!

Very cool retelling of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, under the water, in a Japanese-type setting. As always, Jan Brett's illustrations are gorgeous and fully detailed. My 3-year-old son liked this and I liked reading it, too ;)
