Red Riding Hood by James MarshallThis gently humorous retelling of the classic fairytale of Little Red Riding Hood by James Marshall, combines the familiar Grimm Brothers tale with appealing engaging characters. The characters’ personalities come alive through the boldly colored detailed cartoon style watercolor and black ink line illustrations. The simple text works well with the sprinkling of subtle humorous illustrations; like the empty box of after dinner mints next to the loud snoring wolf.
The protagonist, Red Riding Hood, is a delightful little girl, grandma is a serious reader who is a feisty sort that doesn’t like her reading time interrupted, and the wolf is a charmingly cunning scoundrel. This familiar tale ends with Red Riding Hood learning her lesson and keeping her promise never to speak to strangers, not even a friendly green one.
I would definitely read this story to Pre-school to grade three students for a read aloud and introduction to classic fairy tales. Children will delight in the humorous characters and will ask for this tale to be read over and over again. I also viewed this version of Red Riding hood in non-print form and found the DVD charmingly humorous while also keeping to the integrity of this delightful classic tale.
