Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Chernak
Petite Rouge is Red Riding Hood; Granmere is Grandmother; but the rest of the changed names and places could be a great problem for children and their story-readers, unless they happen to know enough French to read without pausing constantly to consult the glossary at the bottom of each page. The colloquial "dis" and "dat" was jarring amidst the English-French seesawing. There were several spelling errors: "pauve" (missing its r) but correctly as "pauvre" in glossary beneath; "spicey" (shouldn't have an e); "smoothe" (ditto); and "chere" was given the pronunciatin "sha" which can't be correct. Also disorienting are the alternately colored and black-and-white pictures. Probably a money-saving device (since we're not invited to color them in). It may work in a Louisana storytelling session, but not as a picture book.
