Red: The True Story of Red Riding Hood

by Liesl Shurtliff
Oh reader, what big teeth you have! The better to gobble up Liesl Shurtliff’s latest fractured fairytale: an enchanting spinoff of Red Riding Hood.

Red is not afraid of the big bad wolf. She’s not afraid of anything . . . except magic.

But when Red’s granny falls ill it seems that only magic can save her, and fearless Red is forced to confront her one weakness. With the help of a blonde, porridge-sampling nuisance called Goldie, Red goes on a quest to cure Granny. Her journey takes her through dwarves’ caverns, to a haunted well and a beast’s castle. All the while, Red and Goldie are followed by a wolf and a huntsman–two mortal enemies who seek the girls’ help to defeat each other. And one of them just might have the magical solution Red is looking for . . .

Liesl Shurtliff spins a spellbinding tale, shining the spotlight on one of the most beloved characters from her award-winning debut, Rump.
