Moldylocks and the Three Beards
(Book #1 in the series: “Princess Pink and the Land of Fake-Believe” )
By: Noah Z. Jones
Lexile Level: 500L
Of course, you have probably read or heard the story of Goldylocks and the Three Bears. Well, this short novel is a take on that classic story. With its humorous illustrations, and graphic novel style text, it is very appealing to children who are beginning to read chapter books. Princess Pink (who is really not a princess, and really hates pink), goes to the “Land of Fake-Believe,” through her refrigerator door. Once in this imaginary lands, she encounters “Mother Moose, the Three Beards, and many other characters.” At the end of the story she goes back through her fridge and is magically back home. If you like this book, you will have to check out the 2nd book in the series: Little Red Quacking Hood .
