Onto book 2 of Fairy Tales reimagined. I can see why the ending of the first book was so unliked but the author did put a footer note in to "not throw the book out of the window" through despair so let's see how this will be fixed. #fairytale #retelling #classic #adventure #redridinghood #robinhood #wolves #princess #magic

listened to the audiobook. It's little red riding hood, imagined as a horror story, with a very capable Red, set against a worse pandemic than the one we're experiencing. Getting to the pandemic descriptions my wife and I both said TOO SOON only to learn it was written in 2019.

Red was relatable and prepared but not without flaws (which made her more relatable). My only complaint is too much he/she/red said. In the audiobook it was jarring.

Future crime scene investigators? I love this book for the illustrations, vocabulary and the fact that it's an abecedaire (one of my favorite words).

For the #FairyTaleReadingChallenge in September I found a webpage that had various versions of the story and, wow, these old stories were dark! It's been a good, long while since I heard the story so I couldn't remember much more than the main premise. I leave you with a related comic that made me laugh away the horror.

TheAromaofBooks haha this is perfect!! I read a collection of variations of this story that weren't as dark, but my favorite part was the author of the collection talking about, in her foreword, how ridiculous this story really is lol 9mo

This one is a soft pick, a collection of 8 variations of Little Red Riding Hood. I reserved this one back in August so I could read it for September's #Fairytalereadingchallenge ( @Charityann ) but it just arrived on Tuesday!! These were all a bit ridiculous and my favorite part was probably the author's foreword explaining why the original story is also ridiculous haha

TheAromaofBooks Read this one at lunch yesterday for my #BirthdayBash & also so I could check off reading an entire book for #OminousOctober (Wolf Frenzy!!) @Littlewolf1 @Roary47
