Jaszczak’s modern retelling of Little Red Riding Hood is both heartwarming and exciting. She retains most of the elements of the fairy tale, Red, though she is not so little in the story, is being chased by her own big, bad wolf and runs into the arms of a pack of seven wolf-like brothers. There’s love and full-moon madness but my absolute favorite part of the book were the seven ‘good wolves.’ Sure, they had their fair share of rage but Jaszczak also included the protective nature of the wolves in writing these characters. It reminded me of one of my favorite musicals, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. You could feel the adoration they all have for Red.
I give Little Red 3.5/5 stars.
