Little Red Hot
by Eric A. Kimmel
Illustrated by Laura Huliska-Beith
Genre: Picture Book, Fractured Fairy Tale
Synopsis: Little Red Hot loves red hot chili peppers. She eats them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When her grandmother catches a cold, Little Red makes her a hot pepper pie that will "knock those cold germs right out of her." But before Little Red shares her pie with Grandma, she meets Senor Lobo-and the pie comes in very handy when the wily wolf tries to trick her into thinking he's her grandmother.
From the book jacket
Review: This is a fun book to read because it sounds great when read in a Texas accent. Little Red Hot is a spunky girl who is not easily outwitted. The wolf tries his normal act of trying to eat both Grandma and Little Red Hot but she is not going to put up with that and she takes matter in her own hands. It was nice to read Little Red Riding Hood with a girl who can stand up for herself!
