Cloaked in Red

So you think you know the story of Little Red Riding Hood, the girl with the unfortunate name and the inability to tell the difference between her grandmother and a member of a different species? Well, then, try your hand at answering these questions: Which character (not including Little Red herself) is the most fashion challenged? Who (not including the wolf) is the scariest? Who (not including Granny) is the most easily scared? Who is the strangest (notice we're not "not including" anyone, because they're all a little off.)? Who (no fair saying "the author") has stuffing for brains? Master storyteller Vivian Vande Velde crafts eight new stories involving one of the world's most beloved (and mixed-up) characters in literature. You may never look at fairy tales in quite the same way again. ...

    Have you ever thought that the story of Little Red Riding Hood was kind of lame? If so this is the book for you.

    The author in the beginning gives an introduction of why she felt the need to give this fairy tale it's due. To be honest I always thought the story was boring and definitely left a lot to be desired. Here we have a collection of stories that give a new take to Little Red. The stories range from a creepy doll coming to life, all the way to a red cloak having a mind of it's own. Some

    What a charming collection of short shorts exploring different aspects and what-ifs of the Little Red Riding Hood tale!

    My faves: Granny and the Wolf, for Granny’s and the wolf’s smarts and Deems the Wood Gatherer for the hilarious way he unintentionally interferes with other fairy tale stories.

    A quick must-read for any lover of childhood fairy tales.

  • L13 Tracy Beling

    This book is a collection of eight different stories that follow the story frame of Little Red Riding Hood. At the beginning of the book, the author provides a relatively long, humorous explanation of her annoyance with fairy tales. "I don't like to criticize anyone's family, but I'm guessing these people are not what you'd call close. Little Red doesn't realize a wolf has substituted himself for her grandmother. I only met my grandmother three times in my entire life, but I like to think I woul ...more

    Since Vande Velde starts by complaing about the red riding hood story specifically how really stupid Red is, it bothered me that ih her 8 alternative stories Red was often stupid!

  • Ms. Patterson

    When I pick up a Vivian Vande Velde book, I know I'm going to be reading something that takes a unique view on a familiar theme, plot or idea. CLOAKED IN RED is no exception, being a collection of short stories, all based on the traditional fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood. I loved the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) humor and jokes written into the stories, primarily related to the traditional Little Red Riding Hood tale or other fairy tales or even the Grimm brothers. If the reader is ...more

    The book was amusing in places and had some good stories. There were many novel ideas and great characters.

    But as a strong proponent of fairy tales and their inherent symbolism, I was a little put off by the author's glib criticism in the introduction of this collection. I can understand the desire to connect with young readers, but I don't think mockery of a literary tradition and childhood staple is necessarily the ideal way to do so.

    I would far rather have just had the author tell us that h

  • Melissa ♥ Dog/Wolf Lover ♥ Martin

    This was a nice, short book of Red Riding Hood stories. And I have to say no wolves were killed in this book or else I would set fire to those people! =)







    Okay on with the stories:

    The Red Cloak

    This story is about Meg who is sent out to her granny's house but she spies a wolf on the way. She keeps going even though she is terrified and then she runs into a woodsman that is doing some illegal chopping of trees. She asks him to help her but then he turns all menacing and she does some things to sic

    I kind of wish I hadn't bothered with this book, but I muddled through all eight re-tellings, not a single one of them more impressive than the original story of Red. I took issue with Velde shredding the beloved, if somewhat silly, fairy tale then being unable to deliver anything worthy of consideration herself. While imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery when an author spends eight pages listing every reason the original being imitated is dumb it leaves a bad taste in this reader's ...more
