I checked this book out from our local library so that I could use it to help my seven-year-old understand the concept of point of view in narration. We had read the original Little Red Riding Hood story and this was an interesting take, told from the Wolf's perspective.
Here, the Big Bad Wolf claims that he is a vegetarian (pictured eating a salad at the beginning of the story). However, he has run out of food and when Red Riding Hood comes along, he pictures her as a juicy red apple, ready to be devoured. It is a bit of a stretch here in terms of portraying the wolf as a vegetarian who then goes after Red Riding Hood, but the apple-theme runs strongly throughout the story and I was eventually convinced that the food-deprived wolf was so desperate that he imagined both Red and her grandma as different kinds of delicious apples, meant for his consumption. My daughter was a bit puzzled at first (but he's a vegetarian wolf!), but went along with this twist in the plot.
The full-color, vibrant digital illustrations are beautiful especially in the depictions of the wolf, Red, and grandma. The author also offers suggestions such as further reading, other tales of Red Riding Hood, etc. This is not the best retelling of the story, but it makes for interesting discussion on point of view in narratives.
