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!
4.0 / 7.0

This is a very clever spin on Red Riding Hood, but the written dialect is a bit of a mouthful and quite taxing to read aloud, and makes this one I woudn’t love to revisit frequently. The illustrations are incredible, however, and the grandmother hiding in the closet (rather than getting eaten) is a nice aspect of the story for sensitive readers.
