Storytime in the Park with Gregory Barrington

Saturday, June 24, 2023
11:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Join local author Gregory Barrington for a fun and exciting reading of his newest picture book, Goldilocks and the Three Knocks! This storytime will be held at Niwot Children's Park (weather permitting).

Find out how and why Goldilocks showed up at the three bears’ doorstep in this hilarious spin on the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears tale.

Once upon a time, Goldilocks sat peacefully in her cozy home when she heard

one knock! . . .

two knocks! . . .

three knocks! at her door.

That day, she met the three bears (and their pie).

In this comical retelling of a classic fairy tale, Goldilocks meets a boisterous family of bears who destroy her home before she ever set foot on their doorstep. It’s time for a new (and totally true) narrative that clears Goldilocks’s name once and for all.

Goldilocks and the Three Knocks author/illustrator Gregory Barrington lives at the foot of the Rocky Mountains with his just-right family and four dogs that have noses that are too cold and breath that is too hot. He has seen bears outside his front door, but has never let them into his house. Gregory’s first book, Cow Boy Is NOT a Cowboy, was the winner of the thirtieth annual Colorado Book Award and received a starred review from School Library Journal.
