This book is about a girl who went to her grandma house to have lunch with her and as she was going through the woods, the wold was following her and trying to eat her. ( )

Little Red Riding Hood is a wonderful children's story. The pictures truly bring it to life and show how to pay attention and be careful. This is great for a classroom or an at home story. An activity to go along with the story is a good idea, and I highly recommend this book. ( )

I didn't like this very unoriginal rendition of the little red riding hood. While it stays true to the long told story it doesn't do much to add to maker the story stick out and more fun for children. ( )

Little red riding hood has been around for a very long time. I like this book, because it teaches children to pay attention to their surroundings. The wolf is a little scary, but the illustrations make it better. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0823406539, Paperback)

Trina Schart Hyman used to pretend she was Little Red Riding Hood when she was a little girl, wearing a red cape sewn by her mother. Her love for this character permeates her award-winning retelling of the traditional Grimm story, even as Grandma and Little Red get eaten alive by the wolf and then saved by the kindly woodsman (illustrated carefully with a minimum of violence). Little Red learns her lessons--to keep her promises, to stay on the path, to mind her manners, and to avoid talking to big, bad wolves--lessons parents still try to teach their children many generations after the Brothers Grimm first recorded this story.

For over 20 years, readers young and old have loved Hyman's illustrations of children's books, fairy tales, and folk tales--most notably the Caldecott Honor Book Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric Kimmel, and The Fortune Tellers by Lloyd Alexander. Her illustrations for Saint George and the Dragon, by Margaret Hodges, won the Caldecott Medal. (Ages 3 to 6)
