Red Riding Hood has never been one of my favorite tales, but TSH's retelling is nice enough. It's the illustrations, though, that make this book a stand-out! They are absolutely gorgeous--so full of lovely details (the border art is such a nice touch! And I love that TSH put kitty cats into every scene she could manage!) The wolf looks so cute and friendly at first you don't blame Red Riding Hood for being nice to him--I almost wanted to pet him! But, his transformation... scary!
