- Author Bio
It’s not the big bad wolf that stops Little Red Hoodie from getting to grandma’s house in this rollicking take on the fairy tale—Red can’t follow directions!
“Follow Magic Wand Lane to Glass Slipper Boulevard, right on Beanstalk, left on Breadcrumb, down the Garden Path, and you’re there,” said Little Red Hoodie’s mom, but Red wasn’t exactly paying attention.
Before she knows it, she’s hopelessly lost in the forest—and to make matters worse, someone has stolen her basket of goodies. It’ll take the whole forest to undercover the thief and get the directionally challenged Little Red Hoodie back on track to Grandma’s house.
A companion to the delightfully irreverent Goldilocks, Go Home!, this latest from Martha Freeman features all the wit and charm of the first book as well as cameos by Bobby (Baby) Bear, the Pig Brothers from HoGTV, Chicken Little, and many more. Marta Sevilla’s clever drawings effortlessly capture the spirited banter among characters as Little Red Hoodie and Bobby Bear take turns narrating the story.
COMPANION BOOK: A companion to Goldilocks, Go Home!, which PW called a “delightful romp.”
HILARIOUS ART THROUGHOUT: Artwork on every single page, including speech bubbles, make this a fast-paced and entertaining read.
EVERGREEN GENRE: Fractured fairy tales are always in demand among middle grade readers.
PERSPECTIVE: Readers can piece together Little Red Hoodie and Bobby Bear’s narratives to create their own version of events. Perfect for discussions on unreliable narrators and narrative structure.
