Rather than walking through the forest with delicious pastries for grandma, this Little Red is a poet with endless rhymes. In Bouloubasis' bold and bright illustrations, the stylized characters come to life, especially Little Red with her charming personality and tough exterior. This refreshing take on a classic fairy tale touches lightly on the subject of bullying...This endearing fairy-tale retelling will bring joy to literary-themed story times.

Kirkus Reviews

This additional purchase is useful for discussions of bullying as well as for sparking an appreciation of poetry. VERDICT Another fun title from the creative team behind Mary Had a Little Lab.

School Library Journal

 

Along with the rhyming text, the bright, quirky patterns of Bouloubasis’ illustrations should propel young readers through this contemporary tale.
