It's Chinese New Year, and Goldy Lucks mother wants her to take a plate of turnip cakes to the neighbors. The Chans arent home, but that doesnt stop Goldy from trying out their rice porridge, their chairs, and their bedswith disastrous results.
In this funny and festive retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Natasha Yim and Grace Zong introduce a plucky heroine who takes responsibility for her actions and makes a new friend (and a whole plate of turnip cakes!), just in time for Chinese New Year.
Includes back matter about Chinese New Year and a recipe for turnip cakes.

Set in a contemporary city, Natasha Yim and Grace Zongs Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas (Charlesbridge, 2014) stars a protagonist with shining coal-black locks, a bad habit of breaking things, anddespite her namea lack of good luck. On Chinese New Year, her mother wakes Goldy up before breakfast and sends her to their neighbors apartment with a plate of turnip cakes and Kung Hei Fat Choi wishes. After knocking on the door, Goldy gently pushes it open, trips, and spills the goodies all over the floor. As she searches for the broom, she spots three steaming bowls of congee and, tummy rumbling, decides to taste the rice porridge. So it goes, until the Chan familythree pandas, of coursereturns to discover a big mess and Goldy sound asleep on Little Chans futon. Back at home, she thinks about her actions, and, truly embracing the spirit of this start-the-year-fresh holiday, decides to set things right. Themes of friendship and forgiveness resound, as Goldy makes amends and is invited to bake a new batch of turnip cakes (a recipe and information about Chinese New Year customs are appended). The text playfully incorporates festive food-related similes (Goldy feels "like stuffing in a pork bun" in Mrs. Chans upholstered armchair), and both narrative and acrylic artwork abound with details of Chinese-American culture.
