Synopsis

Little Red Writing by Joan Holub

Once upon a time in pencil school, a teacher named Mrs. 2 told her class, 'Today we're going to write a story!' 'Yippee!' said the birthday pencil. 'Slammin'!' said the basketball pencil. 'Sharp!' said Little Red.Acclaimed writer Joan Holub and Caldecott Honoree Melissa Sweet team up in this hilarious and exuberant retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, in which a brave little red pencil finds her way through the many perils of writing a story, faces a ravenous pencil sharpener (the Wolf 3000) ...and saves the day.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
