Hott Synopsis

Little Bad Wolf doesn’t know what to do. He and his mother will starve if they don’t find food soon. They just can’t wait until his father, Big Bad, returns – it has been over a week.

so, Little Bad sets off in search of food – or his father – and runs into none other than Little Red. Who amazingly enough saw his father almost a week ago.

How odd.

Hott Review

I laughed the whole way through the intro but then didn’t enjoy the story. I love that Mr. Lansky took the idiosyncrasies of some of our favorite fairy tales and brought them into today’s world, because while I love fairy tales, I’d hate for my daughter or nieces to think that they need a man to rescue them!

But this story fell a bit short for me. It was cute, no doubt, just not as much fun as I was expecting and I really had trouble keeping the kids interested – even though it was short.

I’ll absolutely try a few of the others but this one just didn’t click for me.
