So you think you know the story of Little Red Riding Hood, the girl with the unfortunate name and the inability to tell the difference between her grandmother and a member of a different species? Well, then, try your hand at answering these questions: Which character (not including Little Red herself) is the most fashion challenged? Who (not including the wolf) is the scariest? Who (not including Granny) is the most easily scared? Who is the strangest? (Notice we’re not “not including” anyone, because they’re all a little off.) Who (no fair saying “the author”) has stuffing for brains? Vivian Vande Velde has taken eight new looks at one of the world’s most beloved (and mixed-up) stories. You may never look at fairy tales in quite the same way again.

    " In a companion book of sorts to "The Rumpelstiltskin Problem," Van Velde returns to another fairy tale that she suggests makes no sense, and give us eight updated versions of it, each that answer a different plot problem. Most of them are just okay, but the last one, "Little Red Riding Hood's Little Red Riding Hood" makes the cloak the protagonist, and is pretty funny. "

    " Variations and adaptations of Little Red Riding Hood are told in this collection. As with any short story collection, some stories were better than others. I liked how some of the stories gave a humorous wink and a nod to the traditional version and to other fairy tales. "

    " A collection of short stories all loosely based on the little red riding hood tale. I will share with teachers to help teach writing and fairy tales. It may also interest students that enjoy reading fairy tales. "

    " What I liked best about this book: the author's note and the first story "The Red Cloak." The other stories I had a so so reaction to. "
