Children’s stories were supposed to hold a lesson for the children and a passive way to guide us into doing the good things in life so that we could have a prosperous life as adults. I don’t recall telling my children the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears; however, in telling the story to other children, I realized later in life that ordinarily Goldie would have been charged with B&E. At the station there would have been additional charges like destruction of property. I was wondering with children being the way they are now and having so much more information at their disposal, the classics might need a little tweaking just to get the “real” point across.

This work was created on 9×12 Mixed Media paper. i used fine tipped black ink and water soluble colored pencils.

    This is stunning, she should have sat in the stone chair :D I like the look of the soft plump chair

  • Thank you…I remembered the green colored broken chair from having the story read to me as a child. I don’t recall why the other two chairs were drawn the way they were in the book. The chairs didn’t look the way Goldilocks said that they were in the book. So the idea of imagery came thinking of what a child would see and understand what it would feel like if it were him/her. I am glad you noticed. :) – Lenora Brown
