In this Chinese version of the classic fairy tale, a mother leaves her three children home alone while she goes to visit their grandmother.

    " This was my 1st time hearing about this book and I liked it. The way the pictures were done were fabulous, it was done in a different way that I have not seen. The story was slightly different and quite enjoyable. There were some words that I did not know how to pronounce, and some of them I had no idea what it was. Maybe doing a bit of a research would be good before reading it to a class, as well as knowing how to pronounce some of the words. Although the wolf was not a nice wolf I was sad that he died from a broken heart. "

    " I like to use this book in comparison with Little Red Ridding Hood. Often times I have students complete a Venn Diagram. "

    " This Caldecott winner was my kids' favorite rendition of Little Red Riding Hood. I liked it best too! "

    " Caldecott. I do not understand why this book got the Caldecott award, because I did not think the picture were good at all. They did not really go along with the story either. This is a Red Riding Hood story from china. I thought it was ok, beucase the children out smarted the wolf and ended up killing him before he could kill them. The wolf tried acting like the grandmother and the sisters ended up finding out it was not. "

    " Lon Po Po is a Red-Riding Hood story from China. In this story the mom leaves to visit the grandmother. Three sisters stay alone at home. The mother warns them to keep the door shut. There is a wolf watching the mother leave. The clever sisters must outsmart the wolf to survive. This was a great book. "

    " I don't care for this book for pre-schoolers. The illustrations and the wolves are too menacing and dark. It might be better for older children. I would have this in my library, though, for the older kids, but I wouldn't read it to the younger ones. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Cone | 9/16/2013

    " I enjoyed the beautiful pictures and the cunning of the three girls who outsmart the wolf in a story similar to Red Riding Hood. I would definitely have this book in my library as a comparison to Red Riding Hood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista the Krazy Kataloguer | 7/16/2013

    " The pictures are a little too vague and skimpy for a good readaloud, but this Chinese story is great and can be used to compare and contrast with the traditional "Little Red Riding Hood". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 6/27/2013

    " This book is a beautifully illustrated Chinese version of the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood. "

    " Bright children. I like how the story ends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 9/16/2012

    " An interesting Red Riding Hood variation from China. Fabulous, eerie pictures with subtle imagery that hints at the looming villain. Would be an excellent story to tell alongside the traditional American version of Little Red Riding Hood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Whitney | 3/14/2012

    " This is one of those books that sticks with you. I'll never forget how our elementary school librarian read this to us in a hushed voice. It was thrilling. "
