Jennifer Jordan | 1 comments Children's book about a wolf. It is set up like Little Red Riding Hood, but a different version. The wolf is trying to trick her, but she outsmarts him and when he is chasing after her he has a funny phrase he says. He says something like this: "A gunka cha A gunka cha I'm going to get you." I know the book was made before the 2000's. Possibly an 80's or 90's book. Was a favorite when I was a kid but for the life of me I cannot remember the name of it!!!!!

Jennifer, is this a picture book or a chapter book?

How is the story different from the classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood?

Do you remember the cover art (e.g., realistic/cartoony, bright/muted/dark colors, funny/scary)?

The Gunniwolf by Wilhelmina Harper for Janice's suggestion.

This looks promising. One Amazon reviewer says, "Because its repetitive action and superb refrains make it a kick to read with a child. The fact that it's a Red Riding Hood-type cautionary tale is mostly irrelevant. My favorite soundbite is the contrast between the running noise of the little girl, "pit-pat, pit-pat, pit-pat," and the noise of the Gunniwolf bounding through the jungle, "hunker-cha, hunker-cha, hunker-cha."

No response, but it sounds like the right book.

Moving to Solved.
