Affluence in The Enchanted Forest





I have to share a few images from this fantastic edition of "The Three Bears". Published in 1942 by Random House; illustrated by Mary Cameron. It's just about perfect, don't you think?

My favorite part has to be the mapped-out endpapers. Here's the full view ariel view of the county in which Goldilocks and the Bears dwell:



I guess, while I never did before, I can envision Goldilocks living in a 19th century farmhouse with detached garage and barn:



But I have to admit, I never pictured The Three Bears in a gabled colonial with a formal duck pond, beehives, and chicken house.
Very nice, bears.

I am trying to locate a book that my great-grandma had. I can't remember the title, but is was a story of some bears in a zoo that got covered in paint so they looked like polar bears or brown bears (went from one to the other... not sure which). Does that sound familiar to you?
