Little Red Hot – Kid Book Review

See what Haylie, age 8, has to say about Little Red Hot by Eric. A Kimmel, illustrated by Laura Huliska Beith.

“I like this book because she is always brave and curious about everything. It teaches kids how to be independent and brave.” — Haylie, age 8

“A great companion to a tall tale or fractured fairy tale unit. Beautiful chili pepper-toned illustrations provide warmth to the reading.” — Library Media Connection

“Yee-haw! Little Red Riding Hood gets fractured in this Western-take on the old favorite.” – Booklist

Little Red Hot loves red hot chilli 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 Señor Lobo. The pie comes in very handy when the wily wolf tries to trick her into thinking he’s her grandmother.
