In this modernized version of a classic tale, Little Red Riding Hood doesn't walk through the woods to her grandmother's house to discover that she has been devoured by a wolf: instead she lives in a modern city and goes to visit her grandmother after her mother scolds her for dancing on a chair. On the way, Little Red Riding Hood sees a boy from her class, whose nickname is Wolf, following her. Mindful of her mother's warning to not speak to strangers, she ignores him and continues walking. But when she gets to her grandmother's house, she finds a surprise waiting for her—Wolf is sitting at the table, and he wants to speak with her.

Kindergarten-Grade 3 Picking up where Charles Perrault's tale left off, this title is the charming account of the effort the prince makes to put a smile on Cinderella's face after his unhappy bride confesses that she has a special talent for playing with cinders and misses the opportunity to do so. He hires a carpenter to make a special place for his wife to create and play. The king announces that the prince has a special invitation for everyone. He brings Cinderella to the stadium and asks her to reveal her secret. Removing her shoes, she begins playing with the fine cinder powder, creating flowers and swans. The people are enchanted by her pictures and the prince is elated that Cinderella is happy. The muted earth tones of the illustrations and charming faces of the royal couple add to the warmth of this enduring fairy tale. An engaging read, suitable for sharing in small groups or reading aloud. Angélica Sauceda, Anaheim Public Library, CA
