A Fresh Take on Charles Perrault
I love folktales. Truly, wholeheartedly LOVE them. Sometimes I wish I would have done that in school instead of Public Health. But Public Health has a better paycheck.
Anyway, one of my favorite folktales is Little Red Riding Hood by Charles Perrault. (Who happened to pen one of my other all time favs, Bluebeard) So you can imagine my thrill at seeing a fresh retelling of the story. And so far, it does not disappoint. I haven't finished yet, only about halfway through, but I had to get it out there. If you love folktales, pick up Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce.
