Review: Little Red Hood

This book looks like it was illustrated by Cookie Monster or perhaps just a scribble monster … and I absolutely love it.

The simplistic scribbles of one red pencil say so much in this petite gorgeous hardback. With the childlike scrawl playing an important part in this sassy story.

So yes, we all know the story of Little Red Riding Hood but what if it played out a little differently? What if Little Red Riding Hood had a bit more moxy and a lot less patience for the wolf?

Let’s just say wolf isn’t near as scary as he thinks and Miss Red Riding Hood has a little something up her sleeve.

If you can find a copy of this make sure you snap it up … before the wolf or even perhaps Red Riding Hood gets you!

A super stylish re-telling of a classic.
