THE COTTAGE IN THE WOODS, by Katherine Coville

22291642The story: A governess goes to teach a young student, and finds there’s a mystery in her employers’ enormous home. Sound like your typical old-fasioned tale? This one has a twist, though–the governess is Ursula, a young bear fresh out of school, and her employers are the Three Bears. The mystery involves a little girl with golden curls who’s looking for something that’s Just Right…but this is NOT your standard Goldilocks story!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion:  The heroine of this story just happens to be a bear–and a talking bear, at that–looking for romance and social justice in the Enchanted Woods.
