Ben Mantle and Lucy Rowland

This rhyming picture book adaptation of Grimm’s famous fairy tale follows Little Red Reading Hood, who loves to come up with new endings for the stories she reads. She reminds the wolf and the readers of this beautifully illustrated book, that stories can end any way we want them to if we use our creative powers and imagination: “‘You don’t like an ending?’ Red Reading Hood said, ‘Then change it and switch it again in your head.’

The text is suitable for a cross-curricular project on literature and reading in cooperation with your local library or book store. Also, creative writing activities such as ‘writing an alternative end for a story’ might be introduced with the help of this contemporary tale.
