Little Red

I have a fascination with Little Red Riding Hood. I’ve read many, many versions of this story, and even did my myth project on it for my graduate certificate in children’s literature. Bethan Woollvin‘s Little Red is a solid retelling with a little twist. After all, there’s no way big bad wolf can make anyone believe he’s her grandma. When Little Red calls out the questions we all know so well, there’s a whole lot of subtext going on. Let’s hear it for Little Red, who can save herself and her grandma!

    When I took a class in kid lit, I tried to find as many tellings of Red as I could. What fun that was!
