I researched some children's picture books of goldilocks and other children's books that have bears in them for inspiration.
Leigh Hodgkinson recently did a version of Goldilocks and the three bears where the bear goes to goldilocks house when she has grew up, I really liked this idea for a story and think the contemporary colourful illustrations give the story a new edge and make it current and more appealing to children today.
Some of my favourite children's books have bears in them and i used these for inspiration and reference.
