What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

When Granny asks Pretty Salma to go to the market one day, she warns her not to talk to strangers. But cunning Mr. Dog tricks Salma, and before she knows it, he’s wearing her stripy ntama, her pretty white beads, and her yellow sandals. And he’s on his way to Granny’s house! African culture and flavor infuse this inventive retelling of a favorite fairy tale, and the vibrant lively illustrations bring it to life. The result is a story that combines new and old and spans cultures as successfully as it has spanned the centuries.

This version turns the Western idea of Little Red Riding Hood on its head, with Mr. Dog dressing up as Red and visiting Grandma rather than the other way around. It’s interesting to read as a little insight into African culture but isn’t one I’d want to turn to again and again.
