Acclaimed writer Joan Holub and Caldecott Honoree Melissa Sweet team up in this hilarious and exuberant retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, in which a brave, little red pencil finds her way through the many perils of writing a story, faces a ravenous pencil sharpener (the Wolf 3000)… and saves the day.
*This is me jumping for joy* I came across this new book when I was at a Barnes & Noble doing a signing. During a slow patch, I picked it up and immediately fell in love. I adore Melissa Sweet’s illustrations which, like in her award winningBalloons Over Broadway, are multi-media and so engaging. Matching the cool illustrations, the story in this book is so much fun. Anyone who loves writing, or teaches writing should have this book! It’a great way to teach kids about story structure, writing, and words.
