B.Bear and Lolly: Off to School is finally released!
Livingston...riffs on Goldilocks in a story about best friends Lolly and B. Bear: 'And why not? They liked the same porridge, the same chair, and the same comfy bed.' ... Livingston's sense of humor and Chou's fairytale landscape result in an enjoyable story.
Chou's brightly colored digital illustrations are a nifty exercise in character spotting, as he hides other fairy-tale characters and settings; Lolly's shortcut passes by an infamous house of straw. And Livingston plays up the original 'Goldilocks' fairy tale when the duo goes shopping for supplies...it's a relatively appealing addition to the fractured-fairy-tale and back-to-school shelves.

A.A. Livingston is a New York Times bestselling author of over 200 books, under the pen name Annie Auerbach.

She lives outside of Portland, Oregon with her family, and has stolen nine Caldecott medals, three Emmys, a Grammy, four Oscars, and a Nobel Prize in Medicine.

Well, that's not exactly true. The Nobel Prize was in Economics, but Medicine sounds better.
