What's Betsy Red Hoodie About

Publisher Summary

Betsy is finally old enough to take cupcakes to Grandma all by herself—with the company of her faithful sheep, of course. And although wolves aren’t good for grandmas, Betsy lets her best friend, Zimmo, come along too. But will Zimmo’s wolfish instincts make Grandma the tasty treat instead? In her second picture book starring the feisty young shepherd Betsy, Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine teams up once again with Scott Nash to put a hilarious twist on an old favorite. This reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood is sure to delight readers from little lambs to cupcake-loving grandmas.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.75 / 7.0

This is an incredibly clever and ORIGINAL take on the story of Little Red Riding Hood… what else would you expect from the author of Ella Enchanted?! I won’t spoil the surprise, but this book will keep you guessing the entire time and the clever word play (“pulled the wool over their eyes” was a favorite) and funny sheep asides added a layer of welcome humor as well.
