"Honestly, Red Riding Hood Was Rotten! is a fractured version of the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood. It's from the Wolf's point of view, but I personally didn't sympathize with him much, since he still ate both Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother. However, it was very enjoyable to read. It was creative, making the wolf "vegetarian" and in love with apples and the creativity stretched along the apple motif, with the wolf always comparing Little Red and her grandmother to apples (and they looked like them too!) Usually, I wouldn't like how they made the wolf a vegetarian and ended up eating meat in the end, but because he was comparing them to apples and everything he said had some semblance of apples, it was perfect."
"I read this book with my 4 year old grandson. First I will give you his thoughts. "I like the pictures a lot, especially the wolf. I love the pictures of the wolf! It was a funny book. The wolf loves apples and knows all the kinds. I think Red Riding Hood should have taken some apples with her to give him. I think when we hike we should take apples. If Red Riding Hood and Granny gave the wolf something to eat instead of thinking of themselves maybe he would not have eaten them."
My grandson is autistic. He knows a lot about being able to name all the types of things that interest him. So that the wolf could name the apples was no surprise. He had no problem relating to that. He reads a lot so he was able to sit through it. I liked the story myself. I thought it was a very cute picture book. The illustrations were awesome. Even though the wolf eats Granny and Red Riding Hood my grandson did not get scared. He was able to understand the wolf only ate them because he had nothing else to eat. We enjoyed reading this together. I loved hearing him laugh out loud at the wolf. There is a teaching element at the back of the book. He was able and interested in answering most of the questions."
