Entertaining both children and adults alike, Goldilocks and the Three Bears: A Tale Moderne is the classic story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears with a decidedly modern twist! Written by Steven Guarnaccia, acclaimed author and chair of the Illustration Department at Parsons that New School for Design, this well-known tale introduces readers to celebrated designers world-wide. The three bears reside in a modern, two-story, split-level home, furnished with a wide variety of eclectic, stylish items! Illustrated on both the front and back cover, the three bears’ furniture is showcased with the designer’s name, date, and country of origin. From the Scottish “Ladderback” chair designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1902 that belongs to Papa Bear to the Italian spoon by Gio Ponti in 1951 that Goldilocks uses to eat the bears’ chili (not porridge) – this is not the story of Goldilocks and Three Bears that you may remember!
