    1. This was a nice, short book of Red Riding Hood stories And I have to say no wolves were killed in this book or else I would set fire to those people Okay on with the stories The Red CloakThis story is about Meg who is sent out to her granny s house but she spies a wolf on the way She keeps going even though she is terrified and then she runs into a woodsman that is doing some illegal chopping of trees She asks him to help her but then he turns all menacing and she does some things to sic the wol [...]


    2. This book got my back up from the start, by opening with an introduction that made fun of the Red Riding Hood story in particularly lame and stupid ways First of all, don t try to be funny if you don t know how thinking about the VVV books I ve read, humor is a weak point for her Second, isn t it some kind of party foul to make fun of the very thing you are ripping off to sell your not very good short stories Because most of the stories here were pretty weak The couple that were better really ar [...]


    3. Have you ever thought that the story ofLittle Red Riding Hoodwas kind of lame If so this is the book for you.The author in the beginning gives an introduction of why she felt the need to give this fairy tale it s due To be honest I always thought the story was boring and definitely left a lot to be desired Here we have a collection of stories that give a new take to Little Red The stories range from a creepy doll coming to life, all the way to a red cloak having a mind of it s own Some are comic [...]


    4. Red Riding Hood was once a young lady who Was so ashamed of the cloak her mother had dyed red that the girl felt compelled to sneak around the edge of town in wolf infested woods Wanted a child so badly that she designed her own life size child doll Had to deliver her grandmother s dinner because her father was afraid to go over to Grandma s house It being a full moon and all Found her neighbors Willy and Jacob extraordinarily annoying had absolutely no common sense And was darn lucky that her [...]


    5. Though this book was good, it wasn t great Would I pay 15 dollars for it Nah Would I pay 5 bucks for it Yeah, probably.


    6. To tell you truthfully, I had read the Rumpelstiltskin Problem a long time ago and remembered that the last version of the story was really funny I was hoping to find the same true here Which, some of them were I really enjoyed the retelling having the grandmother be a werewolf The image of having a wolf rifle through her closet trying to find four matching shoes makes me smile The doll coming to life is probably my least favorite The stories are worth reading in that they don t take very long a [...]


    7. This book started out bad for me with an author s note in which she makes fun of the original Grimm s Little Red Riding Hood.Everyone knows the story of Little Red Riding Hood, the girl with the unfortunate name and the inability to tell the difference between her grandmother and a member of a different species.The question is Why do we all know it If you look at Little Red Riding Hood, it s a perfect example of the exact opposite of a good story.Now I accept that everyone s tastes are different [...]


    8. Vivian Vande Velde is one of the most underrated storytellers out there I adore her books While her novels are my favorites, she is also a master at crafting a good short story a rare skill, I find Cloaked in Red is no exception With her signature dry wit, VVV has managed to create eight distinct and highly original versions of the, admittedly, rather strange original tale.Before she beings, VVV treats the reader to a hilarious and sarcastic summary and deconstruction of the original story, comp [...]


    9. Quite honestly, I liked the idea of this collection than I liked the stories I did appreciate the humor and the fact that Velde did address the issues she d always had with the Little Red Ridinghood story in its varied incarnations I actually agree with her on many points However, I think a few of the stories took a bit too much of a left turn One even goes into a direction that makes the Woodsman into a foil who complicates the storylines of several other fairy tale protagonists Clever touch, [...]


    10. When I pick up a Vivian Vande Velde book, I know I m going to be reading something that takes a unique view on a familiar theme, plot or idea CLOAKED IN RED is no exception, being a collection of short stories, all based on the traditional fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood I loved the subtle and sometimes not so subtle humor and jokes written into the stories, primarily related to the traditional Little Red Riding Hood tale or other fairy tales or even the Grimm brothers If the reader isn t f [...]


    11. Since Vande Velde starts by complaing about the red riding hood story specifically how really stupid Red is, it bothered me that ih her 8 alternative stories Red was often stupid


    12. Little Red Riding Hood is one of the silliest fairy tales out there seriously the girl who doesn t even have a name has no common sense So these short stories are rather thin being based off the original source material The best of the bunch was Deems the Wood Gatherer who bumbled around the enchanted woods making things worse for the three little pigs, LRRH, the Gingerbread Man Hansel and Gretel A very fast read, so no harm done.


    13. Vivian Vande Velde, in her introductory author s note, explains that the story of Little Red Riding Hood is not actually great literature Good stories have memorable characters no one in Little Red Riding Hood even has a name , vivid settings the woods and grandma s house just don t cut it , an exciting plot there s some suspense surrounding Red s interaction with the wolf, but the woodcutter in versions where there is a woodcutter just appears out of nowhere , and important themes what can we l [...]


    14. This book is a collection of eight different stories that follow the story frame of Little Red Riding Hood At the beginning of the book, the author provides a relatively long, humorous explanation of her annoyance with fairy tales I don t like to criticize anyone s family, but I m guessing these people are not what you d call close Little Red doesn t realize a wolf has substituted himself for her grandmother I only met my grandmother three times in my entire life, but I like to think I would hav [...]


    15. Think you know the story of Little Red Riding Hood Think again Vivian Vande Velde decided to retell it, eight different ways In each story you will have a chance to see Red and the other characters in a different light Make sure you brush up on your other fairy tales too, since some of them make a guest appearance woven deftly into each tale.I really enjoyed this eight story collection from the mighty VVV Each tale was imaginative and full of new twists and turns for an already magnificent tale [...]


    16. The book was amusing in places and had some good stories There were many novel ideas and great characters But as a strong proponent of fairy tales and their inherent symbolism, I was a little put off by the author s glib criticism in the introduction of this collection I can understand the desire to connect with young readers, but I don t think mockery of a literary tradition and childhood staple is necessarily the ideal way to do so I would far rather have just had the author tell us that her i [...]


    17. What great fun The old familiar story of Little Red Riding Hood, a personal childhood favorite of mine, is retold up and down and sideways from each character s point of view in a wild mix up of fairy tale variations Besides the fun of just reading it, it would be even fun to use in teaching creative writing or storytelling The introduction is hilarious and would make a great read aloud, performance piece, or book talk on its own.


    18. I fell in love with the cover and I didn t even read the synopsis I just had to have this book In addition, it was penned by VVV and I used to love her books as a kid Then I started reading and I realized this is an anthology The book is actually composed by eight different retellings of Little Red Riding Hood In the introduction the author explains that the actual fairy tales doesn t make any sense from a story teller point of view and she tries to give her complex versions The Red Cloak Meg a [...]


    19. Have you ever thought that the story of Little Red Riding Hood was kind of lame If so this is the book for you Even if it isn t the book for you, read it for the author s note aloneI was laughing so hard I was in tears The author in the beginning gives an introduction of why she felt the need to give this fairy tale it s due To be honest I always thought the story was boring and definitely left a lot to be desired Vivian Vande Velde, in her introductory author s note, explains that the story of [...]


    20. Vivian Vande Velde, author of The Rumpelstiltskin Problem , writes another clever and witty book, this time pointing out how the story of Little Red Riding Hood is completely absurd First, she starts off with the main character s name, which is, in fact, a name for an article of clothing In eight short stories, Velde re writes the tale, giving Little Red Riding Hood new depth and humor Velde s tidbits of information, such as how, once upon a time, the kingdom ruled the forest so that no one coul [...]


    21. 3 stars I don t know how Vivian Vande Velde s retellings aren t popular among children s booksellers Here, she takes us through eight adaptations of the classic Red Riding Hood story I love the way Vivian Vande Velde weaves fantasy stories She makes her retellings incredibly creative while not droning on There s some great atmosphere and a feeling of wrongness throughout these stories The prose only helps this story flows naturally and doesn t have major pacing issues Recommended for middle gra [...]


    22. I ve had Vivian Vande Velde s Cloaked in Red 2010 in my TBR pile for a while I d been putting off reading it because I ve working on a novelization of Little Red Riding Hood myself See my posts for Teachers Write for some of what I ve been writing this week I was afraid reading someone else s version would keep me from writing my own Bu I finally couldn t resist it any longer, especially when I realized it is eight different short stories giving eight different versions of Little Red Riding Hood [...]


    23. A little girl, a mother, a grandmother, a wolf, a woodcutter, and a red hooded cloak Five characters, one article of clothing and an old familiar story, right Not in Vivian Vande Velde s new book, which presents 8 brand new stories, each centered around those same six basic elements One of my favorite golden age cartoons was Tex Avery s Red Hot Riding Hood, which recast the story with Grandma as a nightclub owner, Red as her star performer, and the Wolf as a customer infatuated with Red Vande Ve [...]


    24. I kind of wish I hadn t bothered with this book, but I muddled through all eight re tellings, not a single one of them impressive than the original story of Red I took issue with Velde shredding the beloved, if somewhat silly, fairy tale then being unable to deliver anything worthy of consideration herself While imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery when an author spends eight pages listing every reason the original being imitated is dumb it leaves a bad taste in this reader s mouth [...]


    25. Cloaked in Red is a collection of retellings, each short story attempting to take a different look into the possibilities of Little Red Riding Hood s tale which in itself although a classic is full of pit falls.It is to be expected that some of the stories are better then others and I will say that I was a little disappointed by the variety Although each story was very original and did have a different outlook I would have enjoyed seeing something in different styles then just the classic sort [...]


    26. In this book of short stories, Vande Velde begins by exposing the utter absurdity behind the traditional forms of the tale of Little Red Riding Hood She maintains that the story is, for all intents and purposes, a bit ridiculous In the interest of correcting the faults of the original tale, Vande Velde constructs eight new versions of the story, all only loosely based on the traditional elements Each of her stories possesses a girl, some red article of clothing, a wolf, and a woodsman of some so [...]


    27. Vivian Vande Velde takes the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and twists it into eight totally original, hilarious, and new tales.With these eight new tales, she has created something unforgettable The characters will stand out than anything She has characters ranging from talking dolls to vampires.Each tale was humorous and fun, but most of all, I enjoyed the one with the werewolf and the vampire like Twilight and little Red twist.This does bring out a few questions Like, what were the Grimm Bro [...]


    28. In the same vein as The Rumpelstiltskin Problem, Vivian Vande Velde s first collection of retellings centered on a single fairytale, this newest volume takes a hard look atLittle Red Riding Hood and then retells it eight different ways They were all a delight and made me laugh, esp to see how other fairytales start to poke through I would love to see her take on The Frog Princess or Rapunzel, two fairytales that never made sense to me from a storytelling perspective Anyway, anyone who likes fai [...]


    29. This was the stupidest book ever Honestly, what s the point of publishing it PI gave the one star for the cover and for the introduction made by the author cuz it was funny and it made me LOL Because I read that section first, I wasn t THAT disappointed with this book, even though I still very much amThe author s writing style was immaturely written, as were the plots Seriously, criticize Little Red Riding Hood much Ok, so maybe there WERE a few retarded parts in the original story, but could yo [...]


    30. This is a collection of several versions of Little Red Riding Hood written by Vande Velde to answer some of her lingering questions about the characters behave in such an improbable fashion The stories are interesting, clever, and humorous, and each is told from a different character s perspective My main complaint about this book is the cover design The picture looks like it should illustrate a moody love story, but instead it illustrates lighthearted, sometimess silly short stories The cover i [...]
