The Girl in Red

The Girl in Red - Aaron Frisch, Roberto Innocenti A modern retelling of Little Red Riding Hood that would ladder perfectly with Lies, Knives, and Girls in Red Dresses. A surreal opening with a contemporary classroom of children, and a not so contemporary storyteller. The red of this tale lives in a gritty urban "forest" filled with dangers and distractions of a big city. Complete with a genius alternate ending, allowing this story to serve multiple purposes in the classroom. For more mature readers.
