Today's cool cover: 1962's "The Story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears"

Here's the cover of The Story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, a "See and Say Storybook" that was created and published in 1962 by James & Jonathan Inc. and the Samuel Lowe Company of Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Another James & Jonathan/Lowe book was featured in this December 2011 post. It's not 100% clear to me what the relationship was between those two companies, although I believe Lowe served as the publisher.

Meanwhile, this is the second cover related to The Story of the Three Bears that I've featured this year. Back in April, I wrote about a much older book that was adorned with a cover illustration by Margaret Tarrant.

What's your favorite version or illustration of The Three Bears?

A couple quick #FridayReads

I'm currently reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.

And, if you need a sobering dose of reality, Joan flagged this short article in The Atlantic: "The Saddest Sea Creatures in the World Feast on Floating Trash" by Megan Garber.
