Written by Tara Lazar and illustrated by Troy Cummings. Published by Random House in 2015.
In this rendition of the classic fairytale, Little Red Gliding Hood tells the story of Little Red as she tries to enter a pairs skating competition in order to win a brand new pair of skates! Little Red doesn’t know who should be her partner because all of the other characters already have a partner; Hansel is skating with Gretel and the seven dwarves prefer playing hockey. This book is perfect for young elementary-aged children who are learning about fairytales and are working on comparing and contrasting stories. The colorful images and new versions of their favorite characters will have children listening and giggling until the very last page.
