Back of Book: Little Red is on her way to visit Auntie Rosie with a basket of goodies and some spot medicine. Along the way she meets the Very Hungry Lion. The Lion is eager to gobble up Little Red. The Lion’s plan doesn’t work out the way he wanted.
My Review: I have been a longtime fan of fractured fairytales. I think they are a perfect and fun way to share content with children. The story of Little Red Riding Hood is a fun tale, and can be used for so many aspects in learning. Little Red and the very Hungry Lion, is a new take on the classic tale. The story starts out as the common tale of a little girl going to help a family member in need. The change in this story, is how smart Red is. She decides to show the very naughty lion a lesson. I loved the safari twist to the story. The illustrations are fun and allow for little girls everywhere to feel fearless. I love that this story is diverse in culture, and race. I love this story and highly recommend it!
