Honestly, Red Riding Hood Was Rotten!

Honestly, Red Riding Hood Was Rotten!: The Story of Little Red Riding Hood as Told by the Wolf
by Trisha Speed Shaskan
(I couldn't find a website for Ms. Shaskan, sorry!)

24 pages
Published August 1

Thanks to Net Galley and the publisher, Coughlan Publishing, for letting me read this in exchange for an honest review.

OF COURSE you think 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...


This is a cute retelling. The wolf claims to be a vegetarian (other than on rare occasions). Holding nothing back, I'm not sure kids would enjoy the humor as much as I did, but I can't see them not enjoying the pictures, they're fantastic!

4/5 stars
