Fun retelling.

This is my son’s rating. I asked him what to write. He's 9 and loves this book. He usually saves 5 star ratings for his absolute favorites (and this was one of his absolute favs when he was younger). His only complaint is that the wolf dies. This is a humorous retelling and I personally like it a lot. Little RednRiding Hood is my favorite. So 5 stars from me. :)
Also, we loved the narrator’s performance.

Interesting twist on a classic story

Synchronized images worked on my iPhone.

The drawings were strange, not mortifyingly haunting, just strange.

That’s not how I remembered Little Red Riding Hood, but to each their own. I personally wouldn’t show this to the kids I care for, they might freak out over the wolf being shot and gutted, but it could be a good story for a 7 or 8 year old. The synchronized images don’t show the wolf being shot and gutted, it’s mentioned in the story to pull Little Red Riding Hood and Grandma out of the wolf’s stomach.

The narrator was great and so was the background music.

Where are the Pictures?

We've been slowly going through and buying the books in the With Synchronized Images category. This one was placed in that category but doesn't show any illustrations other than the cover image - I wish we could get the illustrated audiobook version or exchange it for one that has pictures!

keeps my 3 year old's attention!

My son loves this story. He is a very active little boy but does enjoy curling up and listening to Red Riding Hood.
