Better not mess with Little Red when he's got on his favourite frilly red riding hood! It makes him feel happier than a pig in mud, more special than a birthday cake, and mighty as a firecracker. Nothing's gonna stop him from being himself...Not even a big ol' bully of a WOLF!
With admirable spunk and a heaping helping of southern humour and hospitality, Little Red finds a way to crack the shell of the closed-minded wolf's perception of frills and bows.
"With all the amiability of Todd Parr, the loose cartoon drawing style of the fractured fairy tales from Saturday morning's Bullwinkle & Rocky, and the wide-open welcome of Jonathan Van Ness, this story turns Red Riding Hood inside out and reveals a Southern-fried story of keeping things friendly no matter our differences....The language will have children laughing, the lesson is sensible not syrupy, and the ending a pure surprise. A classic in the making, for all fairy-tale shelves, and sure to be a read-aloud favourite."
School Library Journal
"A charming, colourful reminder to unabashedly embrace yourself and all your fabulous fancies."
Christie Grimm, Chief Creative Officer of Guest of a Guest
"Red's impeccable style and unshakeable confidence are a charming reminder--to kids and adults alike--that we all have the right to express ourselves unapologetically."
Roxanne Fequiere, writer, fashion and lifestyle journalist
"The book I wish I had as a kid, and one I'll give to many--in hopes of leading them to self-acceptance and self-love."
Siddhartha V. Shah, Director of Education and Civic Engagement and Curator of South Asian Art of the Peabody Essex Museum
"This book is for all the Little Reds who long to be firecrackers. (And for all the big wolves who long to do better."
Victoria J. Coe, author of the Fenway and Hattie series
"'Durn' funny...our self-assured, chic protagonist is a joyful model of a 'I'll do me, you do you' attitude. The narrative tone has a sassy irreverence, adding to the story's overall charm."
