The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
What the judges said: By setting it in a new period (18th century America), the illustrator refreshes a story everyone knows, and employs all sorts of amusing touches, and a highly distinctive style, in his innovative and unusual approach. The book demonstrates superb draughtsmanship, a brilliant use of perspective, and great sense of light; all in a wonderfully subtle colour palette.
Little Red by Lynn Roberts
Little Red is on his way to visit his grandmother on the other side of the wood when, ignoring all warnings, he strays from the path. Stealing the little boy’s red coat, the greedy wolf hatches an evil plan and hurries to the cottage to gobble up shortsighted grandmother. Little Red is next on the menu, but can a keg of delicious sparkling ginger beer save him from a gruesome end? From the fabulously quirky ‘Ye Olde Belch’ Inn to the scary spookiness of grandmother’s cottage, this witty reworking of the classic tale is perfectly adapted to 18th-century England and is bursting with period detail.
