It definitely conveys a sense of power and control that small children in red cloaks don’t often get to enjoy. Gruesomely satisfying.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

A minimal, edgy, and hugely entertaining retelling of the story of Little Red Riding Hood including a style of illustration that falls somewhere between graffiti and high art

Stylish and very funny, this book retells the famous story in an unexpected way. The wolf is still big and bad, but he also happens to be really, really dumb. Little Red Hood questions the wolf's personal hygiene before tricking her predator into his demise. This is one savvy little red hood.

The fainthearted may recoil, but those who scorn sugarcoated endings will be delighted.
