Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Little Red Ink Drinker by Eric Sanvoisin, illus. by Martin Matje, also the fourth in a series-begun with The Ink Drinker-finds Odilon and Carmilla (mates since A Straw for Two) poised to drink the ink of "Little Red Riding Hood," when they find themselves slurped inside the book! Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Odilon and Carmilla are not your typical vampires. Rather than drink blood, they thirst after books, slurping up the words with their straws. While drinking up a helping of fairy tales, they come across "Little Red Riding Hood." But suddenly rather than drinking the story, they are in the story. Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf quickly exit the storybook and leave Odilon and Carmilla to finish out the woeful tale. Neither wants to come to the ending where either Carmilla gets eaten or Odilon is hunted by the woodsman. Can grandmother save them both? Playing on the classic tale of mistaken identity, this version of the fairy tale allows readers to explore alternate endings to well-known stories. And as with any good fairy tale, everyone lives happily ever after. With clever illustrations reminiscent of Lane Smith, readers will quickly devour this story. 2003, Delacorte Press,
