The end pages of this book is cool as they list all the different words we use for the shades of red, and are spelled out with alphabet soup letters. This sets up the story that Red is going to be a very important color in the book. It is very neat how she took a traditional story and made it an alphabet book. The watercolor pictures are really neat and allow her to play up the red and playing with the lighting. It is a book that would also help teach new words, even a French word, and even lists the definition. It is interesting how the author made the villain or wolf likable and not evil.The author made her a mother trying to take care of her pups, which of course would draw sympathy, but is against typical traditional literature.
