If you've read the Rumpelstiltskin Problem, you'll know how funny these adaptations can be. I didn't like this one quite as much. Still, it was well written and full of funny stories.

Although I enjoy reading different variations of fairy tales, some of these strayed a little TOO far from the original. Still, this was an interesting book, with eight short stories about "Little Red Riding Hood". The last one was particularly good and was definitely my favorite.

Funny and clever, this is a book for everyone who heard the tale of Little Red Riding Hood as a child and thought, "That doesn't even make sense!"

Cute, and irreverant, retelling of the classic fairy tale Little Red riding hood. Has a good sense of humour and doesn't require a lot of effort for the reader.

8 ingenius tellings of the classic children's story, Little Red Riding Hood. A light read, but still worth it.

So, Mother tells Little Red not to tarry or to talk to strangers. (Not talking: That’ll be a big help against wolves.) Why can’t Mother deliver the basket of food to Granny herself rather than send a child through dangerous woods into a house with a possibly contagious disease? Maybe Mother is _trying_ to get rid of her daughter. Maybe this is the same mother who tried to lose Hansel and Gretel in the woods. [from the Author’s Note]

Gladwyn liked to warn Nelda that people were taking advantage of her fine self, by which she took him to mean she was spending the money he hoped would be his if he could talk her into marrying him.

The cottage sat in a little clearing surrounded by flowers. That was another odd thing about humans: They would take a section of ground and clear away all the flowers that grew there already all on their own, and then they would plant a whole other assortment of flowers in their place. This seemed like a lot of pointless effort to the wolf . . .

it was a wolf standing on its hind legs. Then, as now, that was pretty unusual for wolves. Worst of all, the wolf said, “Hello, hello. What’s a sweet morsel of a girl like you doing all alone in the woods?” – which was not only unusual, it was a bit creepy.
