Red Riding Hood heads out in the woods again, this time with a basket of cookies to take to her dad. Along the way she comes across some familiar faces: the Three Bears with three empty bowls, the Three Billy Goats Gruff with three empty bellies…but whose is that shaggy grey tail and that flash of white teeth? Will her dad ever get his lunchtime snack, or will the Big Bad Wolf make a meal of Red Riding Hood first?
Kate Clynes' ingenious adaptation of "Little Red Riding Hood" picks up where the traditional tale leaves off. Keep count as Red Riding Hood shares her cookies with her hungry friends and see how many she will have left for her dad, encouraging little readers to practice numeracy skills as they read along, counting down from 10 to 1 with simple subtractions. This adaptation also invites older readers to compare and contrast different folktales and encourages imaginative reading, as many popular characters from other folktales star in the book.
