Ninja Red Riding Hood by Corey Rosen Schwartz
Illustrations by Dan Santat
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Release Date: July 10, 2014

We all know the story of Little Red Riding Hood. In this newest fairy tale rehash Corey Schwartz and Dan Santat create a Red Riding Hood who is anything but naive or defenseless. Every page was an absolute delight as there was some new twist whether there be the wolf in a blond wig at the Dojo or Red Riding Hood throwing off her cape to reveal full martial arts attire. There is a wink to the readers too in regards to The Three Ninja Pigs. This is a must read and a must buy for anyone. If you have no young children in your life, consider it the next time you donate some books.
