Red - The True Story of Red Riding Hood by: Liesl Shurtliff

Liesl Shurtliff is an author I was able to meet at the 2016 LA Times Book Festival.  I was so very excited to meet her and I was excited to get her newest book just a few days before it was released to the public.  It's now a New York Time's Bestseller!  Get your copy soon.  

Red-the true story of Red Riding Hood is the third book dealing with fairy tales written by Liesl and it is another great book!  Red is first introduced to us in the book Rump she is a friend of Rump and their relationship is mentioned in this book.  However, it is Red's new friend, Goldie that we really get to know in this story.

Red's Granny is very sick and Red is asked to go and get the ingredients for the medicine that will help Granny.  As Red sets off to find the ingredients she learns about magic that can help her Granny live forever.  Red meets Goldie when Goldie is trying to get some honey from Red's beehive.  Goldie follows Red and soon they are working together to find the magic that will help Granny.  Red and Goldie face water sprites, a wolf, dwarfs and a huntsman as they are in the woods.  They also face danger when they come close to obtaining the magic for Granny.  However, is magic really what is needed?  Is the biggest danger facing them the wolf or the huntsman?  Red learns much about herself and because of her adventures she is a better and stronger person.

After reading this book go outside and have your own adventure!

Happy Daily Reading
