Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this delightful, old-fashioned version of a familiar tale, Little Red Riding Hood is a "sweet little girl" whose mother stitches her a lovely hood, which the child cherishes and all the village people affectionately recognize. Against a snowy, wooded background, the child sets out in her red cloak to bring Mother's chicken soup and raisin muffins to ailing Grandmother. The story proceeds in the expected way. The woodcutter kills the wolf "with one stroke of his ax" and cuts open the beast's stomach, releasing "the kindly old woman." With lively detail (but no blood and guts) and lots of pattern and colors, Pinkney's watercolors show the predator in nightcap and glasses under Grandmother's patchwork quilt––and then, in a double-page spread, the menace as it appears to the girl: "Oh Grandmother, what great teeth you have!" The pictures reflect the danger and the coziness, and they are just right for their preschool audience. Rochman, Hazel

By E. R. Bird HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on October 22, 2007
Format: Hardcover
You can appreciate a person's craft and talent without ever really appreciating their style. I mean, no one is ever going to say that Jerry Pinkney isn't one of the most talented artists working in the field of picture books today. No one. Still, I've always enjoyed the man's ideas far more than his actual products. I eventually decided that this was because my eyes prefer thick bold lines in children's books, whereas Mr. Pinkney more of the soft sketchy lines and details type. Due to the prolific nature of his work, as a children's librarian I've recommended and run into a fair amount of Pinkney titles without ever really finding one I could call my favorite. Maybe Sam and the Tigers (an alternative version of Little Black Sambo) but even that seemed a better idea than final product. Then I ran across his "Little Red Riding Hood". I can't really pinpoint why I like this book so much more than his previous works. It's not as if his style has changed a whit. He hasn't done anything significantly different with this tale. The story is the classic version we've all learned at some point, but set against an entirely new season and including some of the original tale's darker elements. Squeamish parents beware. Jerry Pinkney is not afraid to go to original source material if he has to.

You know the drill. There was once a little girl whose mother made her a brilliant red cloak, giving her the titular nickname we've all grown to know and love. One winter's day her grandmother comes down with a cold, so Little Red is sent off to take her some warm food.

I have poured over picture book after picture book trying to find classic tales that were not watered down, facetious tongue-in-cheek retellings of tales that were meant to disturb and teach. This is a beautiful telling of Little Red Riding Hood. I get so tired of cartoon-y illustrations or the new computer-generated "art". This is a beautifully painted story with the classic gore so needed in a folk/fairy tale.

I won't go into the morals of letting children watch TV, but then not allow them to experience the triumph of good over evil in fairy tales, but I will say that children need this kind of dramatic resolution in a story.

Loved this book!

I chose this book as a Christmas gift for grand child because I love everything illustrated by Jerry Pickney, an African American artist. Mr. Pickney's illustrations are beautiful, rich and detailed. He has won many awards including the Caldecott Medal. Through Amazon, I actually bought five different books, written and/or illustrated by Mr. Pinkney. He was in a nearby town recently for a museum showing of his other artistic works. I was able to get all of the books autographed. I am sure that all of the grand kids will love them, share them and cherish them..

This is a beautifully illustrated and traditional retelling of Red Riding Hood. This is a must have for your School Library. The wintery forrest scenes make me think that it would make a great holiday gift as well!

We are having a lot of fun with "Little Red Riding Hood". The wolf could not be more evil looking and the scenery drawings are enchanting. My 3 year old grand-daughter, Miss Ellie, is mystified, horrified and delighted in the space of 15 minutes. Let's hear it for "The Uses of Enchantment" a wonderful book by the late Bruno Bettelheim on the power of children's fairy tales.

In my school library I like to share/read aloud different versions of Little Red Riding Hood and this one by Jerry Pinkney is by far one of my favorites. This week I've already read it five times and it is so interesting to see the reactions of my students. While the wolf eating the Grandma and the girl and the hunter slaying the wolf are in actuality quite violent, Pinkney illustrations are toned down and I love when kids discover the shadow of the hunter with the ax. The words can be read to be scary or lightly for younger kids. The scenery is gorgeous and readers can pour over the details of the illustrations. Highly recommended.

We did Little Red Riding Hood in our classroom and we read this as an anticipatory set to performing the play. The students didn't like the part where Little Red got eaten, however so they simply locked her in a closet. The pictures are breathtaking.

Pictures outstanding, text of story just marginal. I like the version where grandma hides out in the closet and locks it from the inside to escape the wolf better than him eating both HER and Little Red Riding Hood.....!!!
