"Wenger's tale is filled with catchy rhymes that impart a rhythm to the story, balancing fun and humor with a dark undercurrent of suspense.... A fun fairy tale with an enduring message: friends come in all shapes and sizes--and they all love cake."--Kirkus Reviews
There are more inhabitants to the forest than wolves.... Worth considering for any parent who wants to share another wise moral from the Red Riding Hood story. --John Burroughs, Reviewer's Bookwatch, The Midwest Book Review
I was pleasantly surprised how cute this book is! Not only did Mrs Wenger write an entertaining retelling (with an important lesson) but she illustrated it perfectly! ... As a mom, I could see reading this to/with say 3 to 6 or 7 year olds. The story is a little quick read, and I think is sure to entertain. -- Bunny Cates at bunnycates.com

This is not a remake of the original Little Red Riding Hood. This is a new story for a new age. Little Red Riding Hood has a few surprises she did not have helping her the first time around. Maybe one was a gift from Snow White. No matter, "Little Red" listens not and proceeds to walk through the woods again, fully aware that eyes are upon her. The word play is fantastic. Children will be jumping in with glee to recite many of the verses. Each character's voice is distinctive and parents will enjoy reading the different parts.
Rarely do I receive a book that makes me immediately dive in and read cover to cover. The cover is what piqued my interest in the first place. The author and illustrator are one. Ms. Wenger has done a marvelous job with both the text and the illustrations. Everything is original and fresh. This is a fun read that makes a great bedtime story or a wonderful choice for story hour. Deserves to win some awards this year. Wonderful story.
