Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas is a spin on Goldie Locks and the Three Bears with a Chinese New Year spin! Goldy Luck doesn’t have all that much luck or weath, even though her parents thought she would when she was born. Her mom asks her to go to the neighbors to wish them a happy new year but they are not home. She neds up dropping the turnip cakes that she brought over, tries all of the Chan’s congee, breaks a chair and ends up asleep in Little Chan’s bed. When the Chans get home she runs off startled but once she gets home she realizes that she needs to go back over and apologize and make the mistakes that she made right.

About the Book
In this Chinese American retelling of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” a careless Goldy Luck wreaks havoc on the home of a family of panda bears. She eats up the littlest panda’s rice porridge, breaks his rocking chair, and rumples all the blankets on his futon. When Goldy takes responsibility for her actions, she makes a new friend (and a whole plate of turnip cakes!) just in time for Chinese New Year.
