Publisher's Summary

From The New York Times best-selling author of Rump comes a spellbinding fairy tale featuring a brave heroine, a wild wolf, plenty of magical misadventures, and more!

Red is not afraid of the big bad wolf. She’s not afraid of anything...except magic. But when Red’s granny falls ill, it seems that only magic can save her, and fearless Red is forced to confront her one weakness. 

With the help of a blond, porridge-sampling nuisance called Goldie, Red goes on a quest to cure Granny. Her journey takes her through dwarves’ caverns to a haunted well and a beast’s castle. All the while, Red and Goldie are followed by a wolf and a huntsman - two mortal enemies who seek the girls’ help to defeat each other. And one of them just might have the magical solution Red is looking for.... 

Liesl Shurtliff weaves a spellbinding tale, shining the spotlight on a beloved character from her award-winning debut, Rump.

"Red is the most wonder-filled fairy tale of them all!” (Chris Grabenstein, New York Times best-selling author of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library)

"Moving and filled with hope...the charm of Shurtliff's retelling is how she imbues the storybook tropes with vibrant humanity." (Shelf Awareness, starred review)

And don't miss Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk, "a delightful story of family, perseverance and courage" (Booklist).
