Delightful Red Riding Hood retelling. Rich artwork. Definitely picking this one up for my school library.

This is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood from the wolf's perspective. The little wolf heads off to his grandmother's house with a rabbit because she is old and can no longer hunt. Garbed in his red hooded cape, he is warned by his father to stay clear of the dead woods so he won't run into the hunter or his daughter. Of course, like any child, he daydreams, follows animals and other things until he is lost and has eaten the rabbit himself. Along comes a sweet, polite young girl to help him on his way as well as replace the rabbit he has eaten, or has she? The illustrations remind me of those in the old Grimm fairytale books I grew up. The young wolf is very trusting and a bit naive, and the girl is tricky and not what she seems to be. Children can learn not to trust everyone and everything as well as the importance of listening to their parents' warnings. This can also be used in a middle grades classroom when studying fairytales. An introduction to fractured fairytales and rewritten tales would be a great use of this book. A wonderful addition to a public, school, class or family library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

I've heard of retellings before and am quite a fan of them. However, one that I had never considered before, at least not at great length, was what if it was the wolf going through the forest and a young girl that lured him off the forest path on the way to grandmother's house? Freely inspired by Charles Perrault's Little Red Riding Hood, Amélie Fléchais turns the classic story into a tale of her own with a renewed point of view while still retaining the darkness of the original story. The little wolf has the mannerisms of the main character of a fairy tale. He wants to trust, but his good heart is too good and it gets him into trouble when he meets the young girl who lives in the forest with her hunter papa. Through her he learns not only why he should fear humans, but why he should heed the warnings of his parents. What is interesting about Amélie Fléchais's version of the Red Riding Hood story is that we get a little more story to the feud, so to speak, between the adversaries. The young girl tells the little wolf why she and her father hate the wolves and, at the conclusion of the book, we find out why this isn't the only side to the story. It's an good metaphor for real life because there just as in Little Red Riding Wolf, there is always more than one side to a story. Fléchais's artwork was a blessing for the story because it enhanced the story. I'm not entirely certain of the methods used, but to hazard a guess I'd say a mixture of watercolors and graphite pencils. Whatever was used, the colors were blended well to bring to mind a fairy tale story, muted when the narrative called for a subdued tone, and bright when the little fox had hope and his family was there for him. I'd recommend this book for fans of all ages, though caution parents that they may need to explain why the little fox is bringing a visible rabbit to his grandmother to eat/snacks on it along the way. The visuals are not graphic, exactly, just alluded it in a way that might inspire questions from some astute young ones. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The Little Red Wolf (ebook) by Amélie Fléchais Another book to look into the fractured stories of Little red riding hood. Like other attempts of changing things to the wolf's point of view, this book is a play on seeing things from another perspective. That the innocent little girl may not be as uniquely innocent as believed from the original story and that the wolf had a different reason and purpose for going to his grandmothers house. The pictures are cute, and the story adaptation is one teachers can use in the classroom to help change perspective
