Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This Lift-the-Flap Book is a send-up of the Little Red Riding Hood tale. An introduction to the cast (Red, her grandmother and the woodcutter) includes a door, behind which lurks the big bad wolf; the animals of the forest keep warning Red Riding Hood with the refrain found in the title. The wolf can be found hanging from the branches of a tree and breathing through a snorkel from his hiding place in a water trough. When he pops out to nab Red, he, too, is offered a "Look out, he's behind you," but not before the woodcutter has grabbed him. Funny asides from all the characters add charm to this telling; the irreverence will appeal to children as much as the lift-the-flap concept does. Ages 3-8.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 Little Red Riding Hood goes off to see her grandmother, but her animal friends keep warning, "Look out, he's behind you!" Indeed, the big bad wolf lurks behind trees and bushes, water troughs and doors, until he leaps out to claim his prey. The woodcutter, of course, saves the day and puts the wolf behind bars. Bradman and Chamberlain have used the folktale as a vehicle for reinforcing spatial concepts; consequently, the story lacks familiar details: Red never meets the wolf in the woods; Grannie never appears to be ill, nor is she eaten; and the wolf never disguises himself to trick his soon-to-be lunch. Rather, the emphasis is on the wolf's whereabouts, which are hidden by lift-up flaps on each two-page spread. The humorous cartoon illustrations are colorful and work well, although they lack the punch of those in James Marshall's recent version (Dial, 1987). Similarly, spatial concepts are better served by Hoban's Over, Under & Through (Aladdin, 1986) and Hutchins' Rosie's Walk (Macmillan, 1968) , and this is no substitute for the original tale. Still, the book can be used as a participatory read-aloud in preschool storytimes emphasizing observation skills. Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, Wheeler School, Providence, R.I.

I've used this story for years with my kindergarteners and first graders. They love the flaps and chime in "Where?" on each page. It's a great teaching tool for lining up properly ("Whose behind you?"). I recommend it to all pre-school to 1st grade teachers.
