7-year-old, 5-year-old, and 33-year-old enjoyed this equally. Now the kids want to learn karate too!

This twist on an old classic had me rolling on the ground in stitches! The rhymes are fresh and witty, and the illustrations are action packed. Overall, the differences are welcome. Red Riding Hood is smart and sporty, and doesn't need a woodsman to save her. The wolf is a well developed character with a full story arc. You'll have to read this book to know what I mean. I don't want to write any spoilers!

Although I did not like the 'Three Little Ninja Pigs' book, I did like this one. In this one, the wolf is corrected and forgiven, there are no words like "kicking butt", and well, this one is clean, rhyming fun with a twist that leaves everyone happy!

I really enjoyed this interesting and fun twist to the classic.
Was really fun to read and it made me laugh.

"His belly was achin' for bacon. 'I'm wasting away,' he complained. To huff and to puff was no longer enough."
