Denslow's Three Bears Reviews
Denslow’s Three Bears is a very unique version based off the tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It is about a little blonde girl named Golden Hair who lives with her grandmother in the forest. She gets bored one day and wanders off into the woods and comes upon a cute cabin in the woods that happens to belong to the three bears. Golden Hair seems to already know about these bears which the author makes very clear to the readers. Golden Hair then goes into the bear’s house and cleans up the mess they made. When the bears come home, instead of getting scared, they are friendly and nice to her and they welcome her into their home. Golden Hair and the Bears get along so well that they all decide to go to Golden Hair’s house to meet her grandmother. They get along so well with Golden Hair’s grandmother and so the bears decide to move in. The three bears, Golden Hair and her grandmother all get along so well and they all live happily ever after. The first thing that caught my curiosity was the storyline. It was contradictory to the original tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I think the author is trying to portray an alternative tale that in the reader’s mind would seem to be a silly possibility. The way the story is read has a sarcastic tone to it. It is paced so quickly and it seems like something that is impossible to comprehend. The character’s involvement with one another also display’s a miscommunication to the reader with how bears and human beings should react to one another The illustrations were also a great component to the masterpiece that was this story. I felt it was a wonderfully put together story because it is most definitely something I could read over and over without getting bored or lost. The way that the bears in the story are drawn shows the compatibility factor that the author put in the story. The bears have a human like posture with great big smiles and human like expressions on their faces. There is almost an overpowered happiness portrayed on the bear’s faces that resemble a faked expression or a sarcastic tone. As I was reading through the story and watching the illustrations come to life, I actually felt like there would be a scary twist at the end of the story having to do with the death of Golden Hair. The tone of the story that I noticed had intended some sarcasm. The tone was playful yet serious at the same time. The author wanted you to see how the positive alternative to the story could have worked out. The tone sets the way that the reader will interpret this story in their mind. The mood was very optimistic and the story had a Cinderella ending. The author does leave the readers questioning in the end because the story asks “how long they lived thus, no one seems to know” which is an odd and mysterious wondering thought.
Golden Hair lived with her grandmother on the edge of the woods. She would do the chores each day, then go play with her friends the animals. One day Golden Hair strayed too far from her home, and reached a little cabin. Here lived three bears. She knew these bears were quite jolly and wanted to meet them so she entered the cabin. However the cabin was quite a mess and so she decided to clean it for them. When the Bears came home they were very please with what she had done. When the sun began to set the Bears walked Golden Hair home. This pleased the grandmother and she invited them to stay. The next day they all decided to live together. They were all. Ety happy and made friends with many other children.
I came upon this story through the Library of Congress Website. The Illustrations in this book are great I especially like that they reflect the type of illustrations done for children books for the era. The digital copy I read was published in 1903. Another interesting thing about this book is the story itself which has very subtle racism. In the story the black bears like the little white girl so much that they go home with her and they help her do her chores. The book demonstrates the subtle racism that was probably experienced by people of color in a post-civil war United States. Or maybe I'm exaggerating and it is just a children's story.
Interesting lesser known ending.
