the wolf tells the story

So Little Red is a vapid narcicist, and Wolf is a starving vegetarian who couldn't resist the apple looking Red and Grandma. Great "Think About It" section encourages readers to consider this point of view in comparison to other versions of Little Red Riding Hood that they may have read or heard. Also includes references to 3 other Little Red tales, Fact Hound code, and glossary. Illustrations go nicely with the text, contributing to the character traits as described by the Wolf (love Grandma's house, filled with photos of herself!). ( )

If you love apples (Granny Smith, Macintosh, Golden Delicious, etc.) AND you always thought there was something about Little Red's tale that just didn't ring true, then this is the book for you! This was so funny and is easily a great addition to any library collection. If you, like me, enjoy getting a different perspective of any story, then don't neglect Trisha Shaskan's Other Side of the Story series! ( )

I read this book with my 4 year old grandson. First I will give you his thoughts. "I like the pictures a lot, especially the wolf. I love the pictures of the wolf! It was a funny book. The wolf loves apples and knows all the kinds. I think Red Riding Hood should have taken some apples with her to give him. I think when we hike we should take apples. If Red Riding Hood and Granny gave the wolf something to eat instead of thinking of themselves maybe he would not have eaten them."
My grandson is autistic. He knows a lot about being able to name all the types of things that interest him. So that the wolf could name the apples was no surprise. He had no problem relating to that. He reads a lot so he was able to sit through it. I liked the story myself. I thought it was a very cute picture book. The illustrations were awesome. Even though the wolf eats Granny and Red Riding Hood my grandson did not get scared. He was able to understand the wolf only ate them because he had nothing else to eat. We enjoyed reading this together. I loved hearing him laugh out loud at the wolf. There is a teaching element at the back of the book. He was able and interested in answering most of the questions.
