Synopses & Reviews
Classic Fairy Tale Pop-Ups are delightfully retold favorite stories, enhanced with fresh new illustrations that have surprising pop-up features on every two-page spread. As kids turn each page, the characters come to life--moving, playing, running, and adding an extra dimension to each story. In this tale, Little Red Riding Hood knows that danger lurks in the dark woods. But is she ready for the danger that awaits her at Granny's house?
"The Classic Fairy Tale Pop-Ups series opens with this fine retelling of Red Riding Hood's jaunt through the forest. Seal's illustrations incorporate textures that give the story a homey feeling (close-up photographs of carpeting blanket the floor of Grandmother's house, and Red Riding Hood's signature garment has a subtle fabric texture). While the text is straightforward and even a tad wordy, Ita's pop-ups (including a nifty one that lets readers view the wolf-in-disguise from the foot of Grandmother's bed) should hold kids' attention. Simultaneously available: The Three Little Pigs by Miriam Latimer. Ages 3 6." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
