When Kiniro, a young mermaid, comes upon a gorgeous house made of seashells and coral, she is so curious that she goes inside. She's thrilled to find a just-right breakfast, pretty little chair, and, best of all, a comfy bed that rocks in the current.
But when the Octopus family returns home, they are not happy to find that someone has been eating their food and breaking their things. Baby has the biggest shock when she finds the mermaid asleep in her bed!

An underwater retelling of the classic story, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. In this story it's a mermaid and the three octopuses. The illustrations were great, as always.

The artwork is GORGEOUS and the idea behind the story is really innovative, at least to me. I'm never a fan of B&E, but it's a reboot of a fairy tale where it is the central plot point. Very well done, beautiful book. Five, it's Jan Brett can you imagine less than five, stars. :)

Jan Brett reimagines Goldilocks and the Three Bears under the sea. This time it is octopi and a curious mermaid. Wonderfully detailed illustrations show the movements of all.
