What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

In this Chinese American retelling of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” a careless Goldy Luck wreaks havoc on the home of a family of panda bears. She eats up the littlest panda’s rice porridge, breaks his rocking chair, and rumples all the blankets on his futon. When Goldy takes responsibility for her actions, she makes a new friend (and a whole plate of turnip cakes!) just in time for Chinese New Year.

This book is an adorable parody of Goldilocks and the three bears for the Chinese New Year. I especially loved all the subtle references to Chinese New Year’s traditions strewn throughout and that Goldi comes back to rectify her mistakes and make a few friends as well.

Who Wrote Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas

author
Natasha Yim

I'm the author of six picture books: OTTO'S RAINY DAY (Charlebridge Publishing 2000); CIXI, THE DRAGON EMPRESS (Goosebottom Books, 2011); SACAJAWEA OF THE SHOSHONE (Goosebottom Books, 2012), GOLDY LUCK AND THE THREE PANDAS (Charlesbridge Publishing, 2014); THE ROCK MAIDEN (Wisdom Tales Press, 2017.); and MULAN’S LUNAR NEW YEAR (Disney Worldwide Publishing, 2018). GOLDY LUCK AND THE THREE PANDAS was a Junior Library Guild and a Scholastic Book Club selection, and was nominated for the 2017 Illinois Monarch Reader’s Choice Award. My nonfiction articles have been published in the children’s magazines “Highlights for Children”, “Faces”, “Appleseeds”, and “Muse". "The Elephant Queen" which appeared in the February issue of Faces, received a Letter of Merit in the 2013 SCBWI Magazine Merit Awards. My math concept picture book, YUM YUM, DIM SUM! has just been acquired by Charlesbridge Publishing, and I'm currently working on my first middle grade novel. When I’m not writing, I love to travel, hang out with my family, binge on Netflix shows, and play with my dog, Juneau.
