Genre: Fairy Tale, Fractured Fairy Tale, Picture Book

From the back of the book

Review:  This was a cute story about a girly wolf who loves pink and fairy tales.  But her parents are big bad wolves who make her go get dinner for them that includes a nice juicy girl.  The wolf knows she has to try to make her parents happy and so tries to be a Big Bad Wolf but just can't help herself dressing up in grandma's clothes or listening to Little Red Riding Hood read fairy tales.  I really liked the story up until the end of the book.  The ending is abrupt and doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the book.

Rating:  3 1/2 stars
