The beloved classic, Little Red Riding Hood, has never had a cuter, more enthusiastic star than Arnold in this witty picture book that’s perfect for reading aloud.
Arnold is an eager young sheep who is excited to be in his very first book. No problem-o! Except he’s a bit big and fluffy to play Little Red Riding Hood, and he’s a tiny bit scared of the deep dark woods. Oh, and he has a friend who would be just perfect as Granny…perhaps the author wouldn’t mind a few suggestions?
Linda Ravin Lodding, like Arnold, has always loved talking back…and writing her own stories. Now she is the award-winning author of five children’s books. Linda is originally from New York but has spent the past twenty years in Austria, The Netherlands, and now Sweden. Today she lives in Uppsala with her husband and teenage daughter. When Linda is not writing, she works for a children’s rights organization initiated by the Swedish Royal Family. (And, also like Arnold, she is a smidgen afraid of the woods.)
