Product Details

Praise

Short but briskly savage versions of several classic tales… offers younger children an eye-opening cross-section of the far-from-innocuous world of folk literature.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Make room on the shelf. A new classic has arrived.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Beloved classics are successfully served by these bold, striking renditions. There’s no sugarcoating here.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

A glance at wolf on the book’s jacket, sharp claws and teeth at the ready, will reassure readers that this is no pastel, bowdlerized version of folklore. Yes, a hunter chops off the head of Red Riding Hood’s wolf, but the deed is so matter-of-fact in the telling and so bloodless and cartoon-like in the illustration that children are unlikely to flinch when justice is done.
