FOLKTALES AND NURSERY RHYMES
Bryan, Ed

Little Red Riding Hood

(3) K-3 In these sprightly retellings (including some of the old-fashioned phrasings), bright digital illustrations contain humorous modern-day touches (such as Little Red's hoodie and rain boots and Jack's mother's fancy boots at book's end). Little Red resourcefully bests the wolf with weapons gathered in the forest (daisies make him sneeze, etc.); Jack's story is more traditional, but a dragon and a frog prince make appearances. Review covers these titles: Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Red Riding Hood.
