I loved this rendition of Little Red Riding Hood! Little Red Riding Hood is considered a fairytale, but to me it can be viewed in many ways. Although it is labeled as a fairytale I'm also able to see it as a fable because it can teach you things even if it was explicitly explained. Fables are a style of traditional literature that make you learn a moral at the end of the story, but I feel like that happens a lot in fairytales and tall tales where it teaches you of what characteristics you should ...more

This book has a modern twist to the traditional tale that we all know and love. Red Riding Hood is a young girl who instead of wearing a cape, wears a red hoodie. Similar to the traditional tale, Little Red Riding hood lives in a cottage at the edge of the forest with her mother. When her grandmother isn’t feeling well, her mother asks Little Red Riding Hood to bring her grandmother a basket of food. Before she leaves her mother warms her “Be careful in the forest and beware of the Big Bad Wolf! ...more
In this version, clever Hood saves herself and her grandmother from the wolf.

A modern looking Little Red Riding Hood wearing a hoodie instead of a cape is sent by her mother to deliver a basket of healthy-looking fruits and cheese to her sick grandmother. Mom warns Red to beware of the Big Bad Wolf. Along the way, Red meets the Wolf, tells him where she is going, then stops to pick flowers and acorns. She next encounters a bear wearing a beret (perhaps suggesting a connection with Perrault’s French version of the tale?). She helps him pour honey into jars, and he gives ...more

A fun twist on a favorite story, with a little Dora the Explorer flavor. Little Red Riding Hood sets off per usual, but meets animals/collects items along the way. All of which come in handy when she defeats the Big Bad Wolf (sorry, spoiler ). A nice wrap-up and creative twist. The parent in me appreciates not having to read the same story as every other retelling and the author in me loves the touch of cumulative storytelling and tidy ending. ...more

Of course, more Red Riding Hood picture books and I loved this one too. It was so cute and this time Little Red Riding Hood saved herself through what she collected on her journey. She used the daisies, the acorns and the honey to rid herself of the wolf. In the original tale straying from the path and collecting flowers was what allowed the wolf to get to Granny's house before her. I really enjoyed how that was subverted. ...more

This new take on Little Red Riding Hood changes the ending a bit so that Little Red manages to take care of the wolf all by herself without the aid of a woodcutter or other forest friend (besides bees). The bright, colorful illustrations are sure to catch the eye of readers young and old.
In this modern update to Little Red Riding Hood, Red doesn't need anyone to save her from the big bad wolf. Her cleverness and bravery help her outsmart the bad guy.

Traditional Literature: I thought this was a fun new way to tell the Little Red Riding Hood story. I think it also makes the story funnier and more interesting.

An updated version of this traditional story. Don't mess with this Little Red Riding Hood, she's got things in hand when it comes to wolves.

Detailed, colorful, interesting pictures.

This retelling by Nosy Crow features wonderful artwork and a heroine who saves herself and her grandma by being kind, resourceful, and clever. As a bonus, it was lovely of Noisy Crow and illustrator Ed Bryan to feature a stylish picture book mother who is the size and shape of an average woman. Such a sight should be commonplace, but it isn’t. A refreshing update of the classic folktale.
