Item Description...
Set in an Inuit village, this beautiful retelling of Goldilocks follows Aloo-ki as she, being a curious girl, invades the igloo home of a polar bear family, eating their soup, trying on their boots, and falling asleep in their bed.

Publishers Description
Aloo-ki glances up from fishing and sees her sled dogs floating off on an ice floe. She races after them and comes upon an igloo. Being a curious girl, she goes inside only to find no one home. That's because the polar bear family who lives there is out walking while their breakfast cools off. Aloo-ki eats some soup, tries on their boots, and finally crawls into the smallest bed for a nap. Meanwhile, Papa, Mama, and Baby Bear see her dogs adrift, swim out to rescue them and return home to find Aloo-ki fast asleep in Baby Bear's bed.

Jan traveled to the far North to meet the Inuit people and see the amazing land where they live. Dramatic illustrations capture the shimmering ice, snow and deep blue seas of the Arctic, and when Jan adds a raven-haired Inuit girl and her appealing huskies, an endearing family of polar bears, and playful Arctic animals in the borders, the result is one of her most beautiful picture books.

The decorative Inuit patterns and clothing Jan uses throughout are sure to attract adult fans and collectors while children will want to listen to and look at this exciting version of a well-loved story over and over again.

More About Jan Brett, Monique Beljanski, Cheryl A. Metzger, Ben Bates, Sara Schley & Ian Penney

Jan Brett With over thirty seven million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation's foremost author illustrators of children's books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.

As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I'm drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real."

As a student at the Boston Museum School, she spent hours in the Museum of Fine Arts. "It was overwhelming to see the room-size landscapes and towering stone sculptures, and then moments later to refocus on delicately embroidered kimonos and ancient porcelain," she says. "I'm delighted and surprised when fragments of these beautiful images come back to me in my painting."

Travel is also a constant inspiration. Together with her husband, Joe Hearne, who is a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Jan visits many different countries where she researches the architecture and costumes that appear in her work. "From cave paintings to Norwegian sleighs, to Japanese gardens, I study the traditions of the many countries I visit and use them as a starting point for my children's books."

Jan Brett currently resides in the state of Massachusetts. Jan Brett was born in 1949.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Goldilocks, Northern-style  Dec 1, 2009
Jan Brett, The Three Snow Bears (Putnam, 2007)

Multiple award winner Brett (whose The Mitten is arguably one of the best-loved kidlit books ever) takes the Goldilocks story and transfers it to the Inuit world in this very cute little book. The story plays out in the main panel on each page, but the real fun comes from looking at the drawings in the margins (well, margins isn't exactly the word; it's about a quarter of the page on either side of the main story), which are a great deal of fun. If your household is into alternate fairy tales (and if you're not, these days, you should be; incredible wordsmiths from Angela Carter to Sonya Taaffe have been cranking out monstrously marvelous alt-fairytales for decades now), this one definitely needs to be on your kidlit shelf. *** ½
Smart Retelling of Favorite Fairy Tale  Nov 5, 2009
This beautifully illustrated book, The Three Snow Bears, is a retelling of the fairytale The Three Bears. By placing our heroine in the Arctic, Jan Brett has magically made Goldilocks an Inuit named Aloo-ki. This may be one of Jan Brett's best researched, Jan actually traveled to Iqualiut in Northern Canada, and also may be her best illustrated. It is filled with glorious pictures of frozen life in Alaska. It would be such fun to read the more traditional story with children and then Jan's revisionists version--then compare and contrast the stories. Highest of recommendations.
Great Story for K-2 Graders  Nov 1, 2009
For a different type of a review, I found this story to be a great followup to "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". I am currently student teaching in a second grade class and was looking for a way to show "Compare/Contrast" skills to my class. I was able to use these two stories and meet several "California Standards for Second Grade" as:

3.0. Literary Response and Analysis
3.1 Compare and contrast plots, settings, and characters presented by different authors.
3.3 Compare and contrast different versions of the same stories that reflect different cultures.

2.0 Reading Comprehension
2.7 Interpret information from diagrams, charts, and graphs.

I also introduced a new graphics organizer, the Venn Diagram as a graphical way for my students to easily see what is the same and what is different between the two stories.

Another pair of books I used were "The Three Little Pigs (classic version) and "The Three Little Javelinas".

Anyway, great stories in themselves but also great for discussions about what is alike and not alike in two stories.
Three Snow Bears - great story  Mar 2, 2009
This was a sweet story with wonderful illustrations. Both my 2 and 5-year-old kids enjoy it often.
Beautiful!  Feb 28, 2009
This book is wonderful! It is a clever adaptation on "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," set instead with polar bears and a little eskimo girl. It is so fun to read a unique variation on the story! My children love the story, and they love the illustrations! It is beautifully illustrated with Jan Brett's usual masterful work.

I LOVE that Jan Brett often takes classic children's tales and makes them just a little more fun and friendly. I highly recommend this book to every family! As it's a winter setting, it would be a perfect Christmas gift for young readers!
