Three classic stories from the creators of the Berenstain Bears

Goldilocks sneaks into the home of three fearsome bears and searches for a bite to eat and a place to sleep—but everything is too cold or too hot, too soft or too hard! The industrious Little Red Hen works to plant some wheat to bake bread—but none of the other animals will help her! And when the Gingerbread Man comes to life, he runs all over the land, taunting everyone by saying that no one will never catch him. For four decades, Stan and Jan Berenstain charmed readers all over the world with the vibrant drawings and lively storytelling of the Berenstain Bears. Here, the masters of children’s literature turn to three classic nursery stories, illustrated in the Berenstain style that children love so much.

ABOUT Stan and Jan Berenstain

  • BIOGRAPHY

    Stan Berenstain (1923–2005) and Jan Berenstain (1923–2012) were a husband-and-wife cartooning team best known for creating the internationally beloved Berenstain Bears. Both born in Philadelphia, they met on the first day of art school, and were married after World War II. Inspired by their children’s love for Dr. Seuss, the Berenstains created a cartoon version of their own family, and with The Big Honey Hunt (1962) began a series that would stretch to more than two hundred volumes. Starring Papa Bear, Mama Bear, Sister Bear, and Brother Bear, the books quickly became popular for their evocative drawings and simple explanations of wholesome themes. The stories sold more than 200 million copies worldwide and have been adapted as movies, television shows, and amusement park attractions. The Berenstains’ younger son, Mike, has overseen the series since his parents passed away, ensuring that it will continue to be popular with each new generation of young readers.
