The True Story of Little Red Riding Hood
Baruzzi, Agnese. 2009. The True Story of Little Red Riding Hood. Illustrated by Sandro Natalini. Candlewick Press.
Little Red Riding Hood is used to being popular--the nicest person in the forest. But all that changes when she gives lessons to the Big Bad Wolf. He writes her a letter--very sincere, but containing many misspellings--begging her to help him out. He wants to reform. So the lessons begin. And they work! They really work. But now that he has what he wants, Little Red gets mighty jealous! Can she un-reform this big baddie?
This fractured fairy tale is fun.
