A little girl gets lost. She enters the house of three bears while they are walking in the woods and causes a nice mess. When the three bears return home, the girl runs away. Throughout the story, we can feel the good nature of the three bears and the sympathy of the messy girl, appreciating the harmony and warmth of the dialogue between the characters. Few fairy tales have undergone so many metamorphoses as Goldilocks and the Three Bears. This fairy tale is so well known in Russia that it is believed to be of local origin - also because bears often appear in Russian fairy tales. The fame and diffusion of The Three Bears (as it is called in the Russian version) is mainly due to its rewriting by Lev Tolstoy as well as to its showing in Anna Karenina as a subtext in the passage of Konstantin Levin’s engagement with the three Scerbackij sisters.
