Early Review: Honestly, Red Riding Hood Was Rotten! by Trisha Speed Shaskan

Honestly, Red Riding Hood was rotten!  Of course you thing I did a horrible thing by eating Little Red Riding Hood and her Granny.  You don’t know the other side of the story.  Well, let me tell you…

I love reading fairy tales from different countries, points of view, etc.  So, I was immediately interested in reading this!  Shaskan did not disappoint!  Even though the book is incredibly short (at only 24 pages!), it is fun, funny, and a page turner.  The illustrations are fantastic!  There is a “Think About It” section at the end of the book that is a great guide to get young readers thinking about perspective and how that changes how events are perceived.
5 Stars: I will check out other stories in this series!
Many Adventures, Richard
