Flossie and the Fox written by Patricia C. McKissack is a southern version of the popular fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood. The story is written in a southern style and you get the sense of that southern draw when the characters are speaking. I really enjoyed this book, which features Flossie as a clever young African American girl. The reader is able to get a sense of just how clever the character really is. The theme is still the same in that you should not be too trusting of others. This book would be approprite as a read aloud for 3rd-5th grade. Students can discuss the Southern aspect of the novel based on the dialect of the characters. They can also compare and contrast this version to the original as well as other versions.
