Goldenlocks and the Three Pirates

Written by April Jones Prince
Illustrated by Steven Salermo
Published by Farrar Straus Giroux

Here's another variation on the classic story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears", but in this version, instead of three bears, there are three pirates. When the breakfast gruel Mama Pirate makes is too hot, the Pirate family heads ashore in a dingy while it cools. In the meantime, a young lass with golden hair climbs aboard their ship and finds that things are a bit of a mess. When the pirates return and find out how useful Goldenlocks has been, making repairs and spicing up the gruel, instead of being angry, they invite her to join their pirate family.
