Big Bad Gator Claude will do anything to have a taste of Petite Rouge...even if it means putting on a duck bill, flippers, and frilly underwear. He presents no match for the spunky heroine and her quick-thinking cat TeJean, though, as they use some strong Cajun hot sauce to teach Claude a lesson he will never forget!
The combination of hilarious rhyme and exaggerated art creates a highly original retelling of the classic fairy tale. This is Little Red Riding Hood as she's never been seen before.
We lived in Baton Rouge for 4 years and that is where I was introduced to this amazing story! It says it is targeted for lower elementary, but it would work really well in upper el or even middle school when comparing other versions of Little Red Riding Hood! I think this book will be everyone's favorite!
