Little Red Riding Hood Lurks in an Unexpected Place

Book Cover

Often in the Merry Media center, we receive requests for books that can be compared and contrasted.  During last night’s reading for the #ShelfChallenge, I happened across a true jewel, Ruby by Michael Emberley.  The red hooded mouse on the cover should have given me a clue that Red Riding Hood was lurking within the pages, but I was pleasantly surprised to find her when the story commenced.  This title was well-written and had colorful, detailed illustrations.  Ruby (Emberley) ended with a twist that students would enjoy!   This will definitely be my recommendation the next time someone asks for two titles he or she can compare and contrast.
