This was a take on the classic Little Red Riding Hood but told from the wolfs point of view. I thought it was pretty funny that he was a vegetarian but that apple season wasn't here yet and he did not have any of his favorite apples. Then he thought Little Red looked like a red delicious apple and granny was in green so she looked like a granny smith. I also think this is a cool book because it has a "think about it" section at the end where it encourages the reader to compare it to the original story and find the similarities and differences. ( )

Now this is a side of Little Red (and her Grandmother) that you've never seen before....though you may have wondered about it at some time. Taking its cue (in my opinion since it reminded me of it so much) from 'The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!' by Jon Scieszka.....wait wait wait. Hold the phone. You do know about that classic with a twist children's storybook...right? It's the one by the Wolf himself that brings a whole new light to the events we had only previously seen through 3 little piggy sets of eyes...and as we all know, there are two sides to every story and boy oh boy can they differ. Now back to THIS story....

We have another wolf penning his tale in an effort to shed a light of truth on the events Miss Red and gang exposed the first time around. This time, the wolf is painted as the victim of circumstance and the ladies Hood...well, as narcissistic, mono-tone wearing gals who need to SERIOUSLY step AWAY from the mirror. In other words, what happened next was justified and the wolf was merely in the wrong place at the right time.

Hmm, I wonder...but then again if they really were that superficial what with that gorgeous red cape and all, how long would it take one of us to huff and puff and blow some sense into them? Okay, so now I'm mixing fairy tales ala 'Hookwinked' (which by the way was a surprisingly good movie....if you haven't seen it or its sequel, definitely recommend checking them out), but you get my point.

To summarize, a cautionary title of being self-absorbed and traveling alone in the woods with baked goods that's good for the whole family. The humor may hit home with older readers more, but the story itself along with the gorgeous illustrations (really, they're pretty brilliant) will capture the attention of one and all. Take a chance and see the classic story through new eyes....and see just whose side you believe.

Honestly, Red Riding Hood was Rotten! was something I picked due to my affinity for fairy tales. There isn't anything better in the world, in my opinion, than a particularly good retelling of a fairy tale!

My first reaction was completely amusement. The illustrations in this book are absolutely beautiful, and will definitely hold the attention of any young reader! Fast-paced and vivid with color, each page draws your eyes in and holds them there while the story is being told. From the facial expressions of the wolf, to the vain ponderings of Red Riding Hood, this book is laugh out loud adorable!

In this particular retelling, the wolf is a vegetarian. he tries oh so hard not to eat meat. However he is out of food and hungry. What does he see, but a lovely apple! Or is it? Cue Red Riding Hood in one of the most giggle worthy illustrations of her character that I have ever seen. I couldn't honestly blame the wolf for mistaking her for something delicious. I'll let you dive into the story to find out exactly what he was thinking about.

The only reason I didn't fall as in love with this book as I could have, was because my heart belongs to another retelling of Red Riding Hood. I won't share which one, since I don't like to compare books if I can help it, but it is another retelling from the wolf's point of view. I also felt at times that the jokes were a little forced. Again though, we're talking about a children's book here. I know that my first graders would be giggling at every single one, and that makes me happy.

Long story short, this is a lovely retelling of a classic story! If you have a reluctant young reader, this would be a great book to start them out with. I also see if as a great bed time story book. The illustrations alone make it worth sharing with your little ones. Thank you to Trisha Speed Shaskan for such a sweet book! ( )

Told from the wolf's perspective, the story of Little Red Riding Hood is reexamined. Unlike the original version of the fairy tale, the Big Bad Wolf is actually a vegetarian that loves all varieties of apples. After not having ate in the past weeks, the very hungry Wolf meets Red Riding Hood in the forest and she looks as delicious as a ripe red apple. During their conversation about how pretty Little Red Riding Hood is, the wolf discovers that she is a rotten apple. With directions to Granny's house he arrives to find the sweet old woman who reminds him of a Granny Smith apple and swallows her whole. When Little Red appears the Wolf, in bed in Granny's shawl and night cap, salivates as Little Red admires herself in the mirror. The Wolf cannot help himself and he eats her all up. ( )
