This updated version of the classic Little Red Riding Hood story features a number of improved story beats from the original. Little Red is smart and kind, and the glimpses into the minds of the various characters is a great addition.

Little Red Riding Hood modernized with a new attitude coupled with some giggle-inducing illustrations makes this a must-read!

One hot morning, Auntie Rosie woke up covered in spots. It was up to Little Red to get some spot medicine to Auntie Rosie. However, along the way, Little Red meets a lion who wants to gobble up Little Red and her auntie. However, things do not go as planned for the lion. A hilarious adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood
