Ruby loves all things red—especially the red cloak her grandmother made her! When she puts it on, she becomes SUPER RED RIDING HOOD! So when her mother sends her to the forest to pick some delicious red raspberries, she dons her cloak and fearlessly begins her quest. Not even the darkness, mysterious sounds, or snapping twigs will scare her! But what about a large, hungry wolf? What will Super Red Riding Hood do now?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, because it had some surprising twists to the original fairy tale. Ruby definitely seems pretty super when facing her fears; she's still scared, but she can talk herself through it and become brave. Which is a great lesson for kids. However, when facing the big, bad, bully of a wolf, some action-packed chasing soon follows. This may seem a bit scary for the kids. Finally, though, Ruby tries a different approach. And that's really the appreciable part. So read it and see what you think.

I'd especially recommend it with The Princess in Black, because they're both awesome super heroes.
