Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The story of Little Red Riding Hood gets both an abridgment and tweak in this oddball offering. Per usual, the wolf snags Red and plans to eat her, except that he is delayed by her innocent questions. Many of these will be familiar, even though the grandmother character has been eliminated: “Gosh! What big ears you’ve got!” “And those are seriously big teeth.” Maybe it sounds basic, but the magic here is all in the delivery. Short, wide pages display pencil artwork so rough it looks as if scratched upon a napkin, with the wolf a tall, spindly, scribble of lines, and Red little more than a triangle. This effect can be rather abstractly scary—those teeth really are big—though Red’s lack of concern should transfer to the reader. The dialogue is unattributed but cleverly color-coded; the black sentences clearly belong to the wolf, the red ones to the little girl. It’s a strong, minimalist package that finishes as only an import can: the sudden choking death of the wolf upon one of Red’s offered candies. Preschool-Grade 1. --Daniel Kraus

Review

"Leray's startling, pared-down scenes show what drama can be achieved with one red crayon, a little black ink and immense French style. . . . It's totally brilliant."  —Times

"An elegant and sophisticated tease of a book."  —Guardian



"If there's anyone out there who is worried about the future of children's publishing, here's a book to cheer them. It's all frighteningly good: author, translator, publishing house—all young, fresh, independent, and talented."  —Books for Keeps, Best Children's Books

"The simplistic scribbles of one red pencil say so much in this petite gorgeous hardback. . . . A super stylish re-telling of a classic."  —Kids Book Review

"Gruesomely satisfying." —Kirkus Reviews

"Those who scorn sugarcoated endings will be delighted." —Publishers Weekly

". . . a strong, minimalist package." —Booklist Online

If you are into illustrations and art this is a must.
The story is drawn so simply yet it says it all

I just love this book. It's a twist on one of the Little Red Riding Hood stories (of which there are numerous versions) without being stale or boring. The illustrations--though arguably simplistic--are fitting and imaginative. I love how the font color replaces the quotation marks and the obligatory "said the wolf" inclusions. I love the ending. It's a bit dark, but in the post-Jon Klassen (I Want My Hat Back--a must-read, too) days of children's books a little edge is more welcome than perhaps it used to be. Kids are smart. Don't traumatize them, certainly, but don't fluff or pander either.

I bought this book for my daughter and was excited to read it to her. It just arrived and I began reading it to her without having proofread it myself. The illustrations are adorable and I love the creative take on the classic story.. however the actual story isn't very good. Further, they've incorrectly spelled a word - probably on purpose - but it doesn't work for me.
