Seeing Red - Rachel Schieffelbein

The take on LRRH is nice and inventive, and it would be a higher rating, but I wanted to fix comma errors.

Peppers will cure what ails you
Little Red Hot - Eric A. Kimmel,Laura Huliska-Beith

This is a nice little twist on Red Riding Hood. I love the use of food in the book, and both Hood and the Grandmother are nicely done. It was fun.

Red: The True Story of Red Riding Hood
Red: The True Story of Red Riding Hood - Liesl Shurtliff

Audience: Upper Elementary/Middle School

 

The first time I tried my hand at magic, I grew roses out of my nose.

- First sentence

 

Red's granny is sick (maybe dying) and she is determined to find a way to save her. She sets off on an adventure that brings understanding, knowledge, fear, excitement and even unexpected friendships.

 

Other books in this series include Rump, Jack, and Grump. They all come from the same world, but see it from different perspectives.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this series so far. I haven't read Grump, but I'm sure it won't disappoint. Red is a great character though a bit naive and sheltered. She learns a great deal during her adventure and grows into a stronger person. 

 

Bottom line: A fresh take on the story of Red Riding Hood that will take you on an exciting adventure filled with danger and unexpected friendships.

Red Riding Hood
Red Riding Hood - David Leslie Johnson,Sarah Blakley-Cartwright Solid 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed the story but the ending just abruptly stopped. There was no clarity to the ending of the story. Was it a fairy tale? Yes. Worth the read? Yes. Will you be disappointed? Probably.

Funny Fairy Tales 3 - Red Riding Hood by Reut Barak
Funny Fairy Tales 3 - Red Riding Hood - Reut Barak
Unlike the children's story Red's Grandmother is EVIL.. She enjoys scaring Red with wolf stories. Granny gives Red a Red cape n order to make her look ridiculous, not beautiful. Little did Granny know Red capes were going to be the newest fashion statement. Red suddenly has a lot of new friends who started calling her Red Riding Hood and thinks she a genius for foreseeing the fashion. She also becomes the most sought after bachelorette. And she is very smart. Red has it all at this point. Until the press found out about Grandma.

This was such a fun adult version of the story and my favorite of the 3 books, All 3 stories are short reads just like the children's books but way different. I personally would not read this series to the kids but I really enjoyed them. Reut Barak has a great imagination and has turned old favorites into new favorites for me.
