- The ultimate fractured fairy tale!
- An alien crash-lands into the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears…
When an alien crashes into the story of “The Three Bears,” it’s a laugh-out-loud adventure and a classic storybook mash-up!
After an unfortunate bookcase collapse, Alien suddenly finds himself jolted out of his story and into a very strange world, complete with talking bears. Desperate to return to his book, Alien asks the Bear family for help so he can get back to his story and save his beloved Planet Zero from total destruction before it’s too late.
Mama Bear and Papa Bear try all kinds of zany contraptions (with some help from their nemesis, Goldilocks) without much luck. Baby Bear might have the perfect solution to get the Alien out of the woods and back to his planet…but will anyone listen to the littlest voice in the story?
“Familiar storybook characters go off-topic in an off-kilter literary mashup that originates with two books tumbling off a child’s shelf in the night. Amid billowing pink exhaust, a spacecraft barrels out of one volume and crashes on a page with the “three bears” of Goldilocks fame. With its wandering cast of characters, overlapping stories, and inside jokes aimed at those well-versed in nursery rhymes and fairy tales, this “bear book” reveals itself as a book about books.”
