Rating:   ****






Prince Zilch from Planet Zero crash lands in the Three Bears story, and it is up to baby bear to figure out a way to get him back to his own book.


This may be the most innovative twist on The Three Bears that I’ve ever seen.  After an unfortunate bookshelf incident, Alien suddenly finds himself tumbling from his own book into The Three Bears.  Zooks!

The story is a blend of Alien trying to return to this own land (book) and the bears blundering through attempts to help him.  A certain blonde girl also makes an appearance.  Thank goodness for Baby Bear, who saves the day.

Possible storytime (or program) themes:  aliens, spaceships, bears, creative thinking, fractured fairy tales, interactive books.

    The idea of a bookshelf collision sounds interesting. I like books that get children to think a bit about stories interacting.
