Moldylocks and the Three Beards (Princess Pink and the Land of Fake-Believe #1)
by Noah Z. Jones
Princess Pink is not a princess, and she’s not pink. She doesn’t even like princesses or the color pink. She’s just a girl whose first name is Princess, and whose last name happens to be Pink. One night, Princess Pink wakes up hungry, but when she opens the refrigerator door to get a snack, she finds herself looking into a magical world. Leaning in to take a better look, Princess Pink tumbles into the refrigerator and begins to fall!
In the Land of Fake-Believe, things are very different from back home. Still feeling hungry, Princess Pink meets a girl named Moldylocks who takes her to the house of the Three Beards to find something to eat, but the two girls soon find there’s more than chili waiting for them at the Three Beards’ house…
You may think you know where this story is going, but it’s different from any version of Goldilocks and the Thee Bears you’ve ever read before, and funnier too! With a collection of strange characters like Mother Moose and Tunacorn, kids will be laughing out loud at the antics of Princess Pink and Moldylocks.
Perfect for fans of humor, cartoon-like illustrations, and all around ridiculousness. This Princess does her own rescuing!
Early chapter book. Recommended for ages 5 to 7.
