Is it good to be bad? Or is it bad to be good? This snarky and fun retelling of the classic fairy tale 'Little Red Riding Hood and The Big Bad Wolf' will have you laughing out loud as you turn the pages. The stories are printed opposite one another so that when you finish reading one version of the story, you can turn the book upside down and read the other - each side has ...more

Little Red Riding Hood is one of those stories that everyone knows. Folklorists have debated over it for years. Was it some kind of season changing story? Was the red hood a stand in for virginity? Was it really about werewolves? Or is it really about why women shouldn't talk to strange men, the warning about seduction and rape?

I tend to belong in the last camp. Why else is the wolf always male? Why else would Hilter use it in his anti-Jewish propganda (the Grimms were banned for a while after W

This is a cute, somewhat gimmicky book. The same story is written twice, from two points of view. One view is Lobo's (er.. the wolf) and the other is Red's. You can guess who that is.

The editors recommend reading Lobo's tale first, and I heartily agree. It's hard to really fairly review this book, since a different author wrote each tale. Lobo's tale tries hard to be funny - a little too hard at times. The jokes are cute, but sometimes a tish too predictable. It would definitely be a hoot read o

The Faery Taile Project / 978-0-9790889-6-4

This novella is less than 100 pages long, broken into two separate stories, and with a large font size and incredibly wide paragraph spacing.

The first story tells the modern adaptation of the "Red Riding Hood" tale from the point of view of the wolf, Lobo. A bad sign is the opening editor's note cautioning the reader to read Lobo's tale first: in order to make this "dual-story" work, important details were withheld from "Lobo's Tale" so that "Red's Tal

1st part Lobo's Tale - The Big Bad Wolf who kills Granny to get close to Red. Or does he?
On the other side we have Red's Tale. Was Lobo perhaps framed? And why?
Large print format, makes this appear to be a kid's fairy tale, but the content is anything but.

This was just kind of cool. It only takes about a half hour to read, but it is a two sided story based on Little Red Riding Hood. You flip the book upside down to read the other tale. I liked it a lot.
