This is a collection of eight versions of Little Red Riding Hood, all written by the author. In subject and plot, the stories have marked differences. But in prose and syntax, they are drearily similar. It is simple, suitable for a reader of the elementary level.
The Red Cloak: The main character learns to have a bit of courage. Cute and sweet.
The Red Riding Hood Doll: Weird. I have no idea what the point was.
Little Red Riding Hood's Family: My favorite! Lots of fairy tale and paranormal characters show up. It’s entertaining.
Granny and the Wolf: The wolf is more like a puppy dog and I’m a sucker for a puppy dog!
Deems the Wood Gatherer: Strange and disturbing and not in a good way.
Why Willy and His Brother Won't Ever Amount to Anything: Amusing , particular if you like other fairy tale. The “twist” at the end was good.
The Little Red Headache: The wolf tries to help, only to have much trouble for his pains.
Little Red Riding Hood's Little Red Riding Hood: This one has the cloak at the main character, and the ending was witty.
Overall, the good stories weren’t enough to make this collection more than just a bland collection. Sad, really, as her similar treatment of Rumplestiltskin was excellent.
