FOLKTALES AND NURSERY RHYMES

Little Red Riding Hood: A Masked Fairy Tale

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Ellie Jenkins. With two masks included on the fly leafs and instructions to don them when specific characters appear, these books won't work for circulation, but they may be entertaining at home or in a setting where kids can create extra masks. The Australian-import retellings--with slight changes from the original stories (more so in Little Red Riding Hood)--feature droll language and humorous illustrations. Review covers the following titles: Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood.
