Everyone called her ‘Goldilocks’,
although her name was Shirley,
because she had a mass of hair,
fluffy, blonde and curly.
Shirley goes out for a walk one day and comes across a little house in the bush. After letting herself in, thoroughly looking through (and messing up) the house, as well as helping herself to food, she eventually finds herself a comfortable place to rest ... until the koalas come home to find a stranger in their house that is!
