Review by School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-Gr 2—Little Red Riding Hood is on her way to Grandma's house with a basket of treats. She has been warned by her mother not to talk to strangers or to dillydally along the way. But everyone knows how the story goes. Little Red does not heed her mother's warnings and is soon to become a potential lunch for a hungry wolf. True to the Grimms' version, this tale is updated only by its cartoonlike illustrations. The story is the same; Red is still as innocent and naive as ever, the wolf gobbles up Grandma and attempts to impersonate her in true form. Nevertheless, the illustrations are entertaining, and the retelling and art have been sanitized to be more suited to the very young. For example, the woodsman knocks out the wolf and zips open his stomach (literally with a zipper), releasing Grandma, safe and sound. Purchase where younger editions of this timeless tale are needed.—Carol Connor, Cincinnati Public Schools, OH [Page 109]. (c) Copyright 2013.
