    One thought on “Little Red Riding Hood”

    1. The contemporary illustrations of this traditional re-telling of Little Red Riding Hood create a dreamy vision as Nicoletta Ceccoli uses with vibrant yet soft watercolors. Readers will be mesmerized with the pages as the predictable story unfolds. The words in the story are sharp and descriptive. This version is a must to include in the collection of Red Riding Hood classroom classics. This version will be appropriate for grades K-4.

    2. The classic tale of the girl eaten by a granny-appearing wolf, and then spring from the beasts belly by a wood-chopper told on pastels.

    3. " Unlike the recent fractured-fairy-tale versions that make Red Riding Hood a strong hero who rescues herself, this picture book dramatizes the archetypal story of the loss of innocence. Red Riding Hood is a sweet, overprotected child. She always keeps to the path and does what grown-ups say–until one day she meets the wolf, who shows her the beauty of the woods and makes her stray. It’s all shown with fun and uproar: the greedy beast rushes ahead and gobbles up Grandma and the little girl, [...]

    4. I am a big fan of fairy tales, but I don't usually like this story very much. I find Red Riding Hood to be spoiled and disobedient. Not my favorite kind of protagonist. In this retelling, Red is much more sympathetic. I definitely plan to use this in my classroom during our fairy tale unit. The illustrations by Nicoletta Ceccoli are fabulous, unbeatable. Great read aloud for your younger children. 6/6/11I have to tell you, is driving me NUTS on this one. I read this book weeks ago and have been [...]

    5. Josephine Evetts softens the classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood, making it more appealing to the younger audience. Although the end is the same, where the wolf gobbles up the little old grandma and the girl, and the woodcutter excavates the two from the wolf's belly, it is not as graphic as other versions of this timeless tale. Evetts uses very billowy illustrations, giving the characters and setting an almost floating effect. I am currently using this book, along with other versions of the [...]

    6. Soft, almost blurred illustrations with colors that felt very Italian to me. It looked like a fairy tale set within a dream. I had a sense that it was a warm season, summer maybe. Typical retelling, though. LRRH and the young woodcutter filled the wolf's belly with rocks before sewing him up. Upon waking, the wolf dropped to the floor, dead.3 stars

    7. This book follows the standard plot line of little red. The pictures look as though they are painted. I like how the end is "she wondered whether she would ever meet another wolf in the forest, and if so, what would she do then?"

    8. I really like the whimsical style of the illustrations. The author also chooses some interesting ominous angles that I found successful.

    9. Classic book about a young girl who goes to give her sick grandmother food. A wolf meets her in the forests, then comes to her grandma's house. The is a good book for practicing points of view.

    10. The illustrations in this book are beautifully dreamlike, and the text is truer to the original version of the tale. The illustrations, however, avoid gore.
