Books We Love: Super Red Riding Hood

Posted on Tuesday, August 11, 2015 by Katie

Book cover for Super Read Riding HoodIf you have read any of my other blog posts, you might have noticed my love of fairy tales. Classics, twisted, retold… they are all wonderful in my eyes. When I saw “Super Red Riding Hood,” by Claudia Dvaila, I knew I had to read it. Not only does it tell a new version of Red Riding Hood, but its superhero theme is perfect for this year’s Summer Reading program.

I’m glad I took the time to check out this story – it means I can share this delightful story about a young girl, Ruby, who is actually Super Red Riding Hood! When Ruby puts on her cape and red boots, she becomes a superhero capable of amazing things. Her super traits help her successfully complete her mission into the woods and even make a new friend.

Charming and captivating illustrations? Check. Engaging text? Check. Storyline children and adults will enjoy? Check! If you have a youngster (and don’t worry, boys will enjoy this one, too), I encourage you to look into this book.

Since I mentioned our Summer Reading program, a reminder that Summer Reading ends on August 15th! Be sure to get to your local library with your completed sheet or booklet to get a free book and register for a chance to win a free book set!
