So you think you know the story of Little Red Riding Hood, the girl with the unfortunate name and the inability to tell the difference between her grandmother and a member of a different species? Well, then, try your hand at answering these questions: Which character (not including Little Red herself) is the most fashion challenged? Who (not including the wolf) is the scariest? Who (not including Granny) is the most easily scared? Who is the strangest (notice we're not "not including" anyone, because they're all a little off.)? Who (no fair saying "the author") has stuffing for brains? Master storyteller Vivian Vande Velde crafts eight new stories involving one of the world's most beloved (and mixed-up) characters in literature. You may never look at fairy tales in quite the same way again.

However, I think a ...

The concept of it was truly interesting unfortunately her writing is drab. Nothing of it was interesting. Her idea...

3.0 Cloaked in Red
Apart from the foreward, where she implies with (mock?) scorn that cross-dressing is scandalous and grannies can't have fulfilling sexual relationships (and pretends to be unaware of the power of the archetype, the very power that allows her the freedom to undertake the book she just wrote) this is ...
