Recently, I took my 11-year-old daughter and one of her friends through the book, Red: The true story of RED RIDING HOOD. We liked Rump: The true story of Rumpelstiltskin so much that I figured this story would be just as fun . . . and it was. LOVED it!
About the Book
Red, a character from Liesl’s book, Rump, is pretty fearless. Except when it comes to magic and the thought of losing her Granny. When Red learns that her Granny is sick, she must brave the Woods alone in order to find a cure. Red eventually meets up with a bubbly girl named Goldie who is on a quest of her own. Though not the most suitable companions, together, they decide to seek the treasures they so desperately want.
Red is forced to face her fear of magic as she and Goldie travel to dwarves’ caverns, a magic well, and a castle inhabited by a shocking beast. All along the way, a mysterious wolf and a determined huntsman continue to cross the girls’ path. Who is friend; who is foe? It’s hard to tell. One may even hold the key to the cure Red desires. How far will Red go, and what price is she willing to pay to save her Granny? [Read more…]
