Another fun installment in the Princess Pink saga. This episode involves a big, not-so-bad wolf, and a pie-stealing duck. Enjoyable, rampant silliness for the younger set.

These stories are a lot of fun for beginner readers. We can't wait to find out what new adventures are in store for Princess Pink (who isn't a princess and hates pink!) in the Land of Fake-Believe. ...more

A twisting of a popular fairy tale to create a wacky adventure into the land of Fake-Believe. The characters are fun and the story line inventive. A good jumping off for taking a popular fairy tale and coming up with good ideas on how you might want to change it into your own wacky tale like Noah Jones has. Hair products, indeed!

Creative twist that managed to keep all the classic fairytale tropes but still make it feel new. Reads very much like one of those "The Adventures of _____" books and not much like a fairytale at all, in fact. By the halfway point I had no idea what was going to happen next and was thoroughly charmed. Cute! ...more

This is a chapter book ideally for early readers (around grade 2-3). A wonky version of Little Red Riding Hood. Absolutely love it! The wolf is scared, story revolves around food and everyone is having a bad hair day - can't go wrong with that. Well written, creative and the illustrations are brilliant.

This is illustrated and written by the same person - some much talent in one human..haha

Little Red Quacking Hood

Little red quacking hood is a really good book. It has a story to it and it mixes up little red riding hood for a duck. Little red quacking hood. Read more about this book and go on a wonderful journey with Princess.

This is a very popular series with children who are branching into chapter books but also like a graphic format AND want something funny.

Terrible. Not funny. Not clever.

Wish I hadn’t wasted my time with this. 3.5 year old also hated it. Many fairy tale references but not clever references.

Princess Pink returns to the Land of Fake-Believe for another fractured fairy tale adventure. This time she meets Little Red Quacking Hood. That's right, Hood is a duck in this story. And not just any duck, but a thieving duck! She has been stealing pies from the bakery of Scaredy-Pants Wolf. Wolf has asked Moldylocks for help in stopping the robberies, so Princess Pink joins her friend in trying to trap and confront the devious duck. Princess is surprised to learn the reason why Little Red Quac ...more

The first book in the Princess Pink and the Land of Fake-Believe series, Moldylocks and the Three Beards is so popular with my students that I find it hidden behind other books. Yes, my students try to hoard the books! (Maybe I should write a blog about this nutty habit?)

The second title in this series, Little Red Quacking Hood is also sure to please. It's insanely wacky: Little Red Quacking Hood is the pie-stealing villain and Scaredy-pants Wolf is the victim baker. Princess Pink returns to the

To say this series is thoroughly enjoyable is an understatement- and the second book is even better than the first :)

In this one Princess Pink goes back through the refrigerator to Fake Believe. This time, she finds herself thrown into a weird version of the Little Red Riding Hood Tale, where Red is the villain and the wolf is the hero.

I thought this book was an improvement over the first because, while the basic structure of the fairy tale is familiar, there are far far more twists and turns- a

With so many pivotal illustrations not included in the ARC, it was impossible to truly evaluate this book. I enjoyed the story but the missing illustrations are a significant part of the reader's experience. Though the story has familiar characters and dialogue from the original fairy tale, Jones certainly put his own creative spin on it. I enjoyed his character role reversals. The color coded dialogue bubbles will be very useful for young readers. This ARC did not include post reading questions ...more
This is a cute new series. Fractured (and crazy!) fairy tales in graphic novel format. Intended for a 2nd grade reading level, I think these will find a lot of fans (my 4th grade daughter loved them even though she breezed through them and they were super easy for her.) Would be good paired with the original fairy tale, especially since one of the questions asked at the end is what are the differences and similarities between the book and it's original. An additional 4 discussion questions make ...more

Princess Pink travels through her fridge to the kooky Land of Fake Believe. There she meets a not so fearsome canine, Scaredy-Pants Wolf. Little Red Quacking Hood is stealing pies from his bakery, and Princess along with her friend MoldyLocks want to help the wolf. But the duck is more clever than they think!

Another hilarious fairy tale retelling in this series. My six and a half year old son loves these books. He thinks Princess is cool and laughs out loud often as we read together. This one ha
The laughs keep coming with this second installment of the fractured fairy tales series "Princess Pink and the Land of Fake-Believe". This time, Noah Jones takes on the story of "Little Red Riding Hood" (and a touch of "Hansel and Gretel") and turns it completely on its head, with hilarious results. I can understand how some adults would look at this series and shake their heads, but kids are loving the first book at my library, and I don't see why they wouldn't enjoy this second outing. ...more

2nd book in the series.

A fractured fairy tale in chapter book format. In this version the wolf is not big and bad but rather a scaredy pants. Students will find the characters to be funny and enjoyable. The illustrations help make the reading humorous.

ARC provided by NetGalley.
Not quite as adorkable as the first one, but still a fun read and perfect for a new-to-chapter books reader. I do love Princess Pink and her aversion to all things pink LOL. I hope to see a few kids dressed as Moldylocks when Halloween rolls around in a few weeks.

Another mixed-up fairy tale re-do that Princess Pink gets involved in. She and Moldylocks help Scaredy-Cat Wolf solve the mystery of why Little Red Quacking Hood keeps stealing his pies. Fun and silly for the younger crowd. Colorful pictures liven it up even more.

Little Red Quacking Hood was stealing from scardy pants wolf because they wanted the pies for the hair salon. But when they tried to stop them the wolf cried and it made the hair sparkle. So that was the secret ingredient. So they didn't steal pies and he swallowed their oven. ...more

Age: Grades 2-3.
Themes: fractured fairy tales, baking, offbeat humor, adventure.

My least favorite Branches book so far, but I can see this being popular with certain kids. The bug stuff at the beginning was weirdly aggressive and negatively stereotyping.
