I’m always looking for a way to get my son to read. So far, I’ve discovered that there are two things that work: comics and forcing him to sit as I read to him. If I can avoid forcing him to sit and listen to a story I will. So when I found this particular fairy tale graphic novel, I thought this might be a great way to read with him, but without forcing him to suffer through it.

Overall, this was a cute adaptation to the original story of Little Red Riding Hood. While still featuring all of the main characters from the original story, this version allows Red Riding Hood to save the day for herself. This was a great twist when many of the original versions leave her and granny completely at the disposal of the huntsman finding and saving them.

Also, if you are like me and you have a reluctant little reader, this graphic novel is just long enough to give them an interesting story, but also short enough that they won’t feel burdened by the thought of reading it. Not only that but I’ll admit I was surprised by some of the vocabulary used. With words like insolent and impertinent, this graphic novel forced my son to ask me what these words mean. He’s really good at vocabulary, so I was pleased that this particular book allowed him the opportunity to learn a few new words. Also, it provides a decent reference to the original accounts of this story and how they differ from one another.

  1. Oooh, I’m gonna have to get this for Miss L!! She loves comics/graphic novels, so this will be right up her alley. Her daddy’ll have to read it to her, but I’ll buy it!
