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.

Little Red Riding Hood - Katie Cotton,Alison Jay

James McAvoy reads Little Red Riding Hood by Alison Jay.

 

He is pretty good at it. 

He played all the characters, including the big bad wolf. 

 

Sweet.

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

My daughter encouraged me to read Rump, also by Shurtliff, as soon as she finished it. I loved that she chose that book, because it looked like the big chunky books I always love, that invite a long stay on the couch under a cozy blanket (its gloomy and cold as I write this). While Rump is still on my tippy to-read pile, I picked this from NetGalley when it was available, based on that earlier recommendation.

 

So, I will admit it, my daughter was right. Shurtliff’s newest tale did not disappoint, so I really need to think about moving Rump to the top of the pile. I love the overlapping fairy tales, and the many ways Shurtliff adds depth to a character who typically seems to have none at all. I especially liked how she seamlessly wove characters from the other tales into the plot as if we could watch the forest from a high tree and all the stories were really only one epic tale – it reminded me a little of the forest in Shrek. I did not really love Goldilocks in this version, but that is a minor complaint in an otherwise completely enjoyable read. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot. I also read this one first, so I could recommend it to my daughter.

Lady and the Wolf: (Red Riding Hood) (Tangled Tales Series Book 1) - Elizabeth Rose

I stopped reading around 50% in. The idea is good, but in many ways the story does not make too much sense. I also don't understand why every time the granddaughter thinks of her granddad she feels it necessary to use his full name and title. Also parts of the story don't make sense. For instance

[spoiler]if she freed the hero and his friend, then wouldn't the hero recognize her scent?

[/spoiler]

Additionally, and this is just my personal taste, I am fed up with books, shows, movies whatevers that show the hero basically assaulting or harassing the heroine, and she's turned on by it.

Petite Rouge: A Cajun Red Riding Hood - Mike Artell,Jim Harris,Mike Artell,Mike Artell

This book would be great for 2nd grade.  It is a Cajun version of the original Little Red Riding Hood.  I would use this to show the class that there are several versions of the classics.  I would have them write their own version of the Little Red Riding  Hood.  They would share them with their classmates.  I think this would be a good thing to put in their writing portfolios.  There is a glossary in the beginning of the book that has words that might not be familiar.  This is very helpful!  I would introduce them before I read the story.
