Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The wolf's eyes never looked quite so big or Little Red Riding Hood quite so ravishing as in this colorful pictorial retelling of the immortal Grimm Brothers fairytale. The vibrant watercolors of Daniel Egnéus lend new radiance to this truly archetypal story. (Hand-selling tip: Next month, Red Riding Hood will emerge in a horror film starring Amanda Seyfried and Garry Oldman.)

Publishers Weekly
★ 10/06/2014
This lush production is a companion to Schenker’s earlier Hansel and Gretel, though it has a slightly different look. Here, Schenker uses die-cuts to add depth and complexity to her black, hand-cut silhouette portraits. Japanese touches, including traditional stencil patterns and binding, give the book a lightness that offsets its dark subject matter. Despite the title, Bell’s fine adaptation uses “Little Red Cap” throughout the text. Little Red Cap appears on plum-colored board whose cutouts suggest the tendrils and leaves of the deep forest. The wolf’s profile is visible through the tangle, but only just. When the page is lifted, Little Red Cap is seen setting off down the path as the wolf looms after her. Delicate, threadlike trees beyond them draw the eye on. More die-cuts provide glimpses through the window of the grandmother’s house, through the lacy curtains around her bed, and, at the climax, into the gaping maw of the wolf. The suspense created by the shadowed, partial views of what is to come deepens the menace of innocence pursued by evil. It’s a remarkable example of the book as art. Ages 5–7. (Nov.)

Kirkus Reviews
★ 2014-09-14
As she did with Hansel and Gretel (2013), Schenker employs intricate die cuts, patterned prints, bold lines and basic colors to create a haunting journey through the familiar Grimms tale. Opposite the first page of text, Little Red Riding Hood poses in her cape against a thicket of die-cut vines, through which readers can discern a sun-dappled forest and the ominous black silhouette of a wolf. With the turn of the page, readers see on the recto the little girl's back as she proceeds into the wood and the Wolf about to emerge from the trees; on verso, her promise to obey her mother is printed within the shape of her image from the previous page. As Little Red Riding Hood proceeds through the wood, subsequent, die-cut pages continue to lift and turn, creating a layered dimensionality. The sleeping grandmother can be glimpsed through the window of her cottage; as the page turns, she is revealed in her bed, while the wolf's menacing face can be seen through that same window from the interior. The "All the better to eat you with!" moment is suitably terrifying: Cuts in the black page evoke the snarling wolf by revealing the crimson page beneath, but the image is so stylized that it appears almost abstract, its impact emotional rather than graphic. Schenker's illustrations and design combine with Bell's graceful translation to take the breath away. (Picture book/fairy tale. 5-10)

    majestic

    The rendered scene graphics here are simple but incredibly pleasing to the eye and evokes a sense of those picture books you read as a kid.

    A Childrens Favorite

    Excellent. Just excellent. A classic childrens fantasy turned into an all time favorite. I read this to my two year old neice and she simply enjoyed it. Not only was she thrilled, but I was thrilled as well. This would make a great family book. :)
