In this clever twist on a traditional tale, a boy who loves his frilly, swishy riding hood turns the tables on a big, bad, bullying wolf!
Better not mess with Little Red when he's got on his favorite frilly red riding hood! It makes him feel happier than a pig in mud, more special than a birthday cake, and mighty as a firecracker. Nothing's gonna stop him from being himself…Not even a big ol' bully of a WOLF! With admirable spunk and a heaping helping of southern humor and hospitality, Little Red finds a way to crack the shell of the closed-minded wolf's perception of frills and bows.
This refreshingly spirited version of the classic tale of "Little Red Riding Hood" explores the challenge of staying on your path when confronted by strangers who don't want to understand you.
Wallace West is a native Texan and world explorer. Wallace says "I once foolishly pet a wild alligator and consider a tinned-fish picnic in Norway the best meal I've ever had. By day I work in advertising. By night my beagle and I wonder if the house is haunted."
