Little Red Riding Hood meets a wolf on her way through the woods to visit her sick grandmother. The wolf is hungry, and Red Riding Hood looks tasty, so he hatches a dastardly plan, gobbles up Grandma and lies in wait. So far, so familiar. But this Little Red Riding Hood is not easily fooled, and this big bad wolf better watch his back. In this defiant interpretation of the traditional tale, the cheeky, brave little girl seizes control of her own story (and the wolf gets rather more than he bargained for).

A fine, feisty retelling of “Little Red Riding Hood," albeit with a loose thread. Kirkus

This is my book of the year so far, from new imprint Two Hoots. Woollvin is a striking new talent with strong retro style illustrations and a simple, witty text. This Red Riding Hood is no fool and a granny-gobbling wolf is certainly not going to get the better of her. Angels & Urchins

A droll, fresh, spirited, singular retelling of “Little Red Riding Hood” It’s fun and it’s bold and it’s distinctively designed and illustrated, with thick-lined gouache and digital art in black, white, gray and, of course, red. Cooperative Children’s Book Centre

Darkly comic, an axe figuring suggestively, this is a good choice for kids who enjoy Jon Klassen’s celebrated picture books. The Toronto Star

Little Red isn’t like most little girls…She is a heroine with some real bite. Design of the Picture Book

Two Hoots is here publishing the 2014 Macmillan prizewinning picture book from Bethan Woollvin and who knows what other prizes will come her way? One could not imagine that there was anything new to be said about Little Red Riding Hood but one would be wrong. This is a unique, witty and empowered Red Riding Hood and the strong graphic style, inventive layout and simple colour palette is perfectly judged. A new star in the firmament in this golden age of children’s publishing? Oh Yes! School Library Association

A bold (both graphically and narratively) reimagining of the classic fairy tale, Little Red is truly subversive in that it subverts the concept of victimhood with a deliciously dark twist.

A Scandi-noir Little Red who is not in a mood to be messed with. It's no wonder this picturebook was chosen as one of The New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2016. Books My Toddler Loves
