Synopsis: Once upon a time, a fairy tale went very wrong! This new twist on a traditional children’s story is packed with fun, humour, and energy.
Little Rude is incredibly cheeky to everyone that she meets. She doesn’t even know the meaning of “please” and “thank you!” However, that could all change when she meets a surprisingly polite wolf on her way to Grandma’s house.
Will Little Rude’s constant insults drive even this newly reformed Big Bad Wolf over the edge? This riotously funny remix on the traditional fairy tale will delight children and adults alike.
This hilarious tale featuring brand-new full-colour illustrations will be sure to thrill readers aged 6+
Review: I love fairy tale stories and this remake was done so well. It’s a perfect read with children to help them learn manners or to remind them that they are always important. Little Rude was continuously rude to everyone she met and eventually found she was being unwanted; when she was shown the light she learnt her lesson.
The drawings in the book were really cute and went along with the story really well, I loved that the usual characters you see from red riding hood were used but in a different way.
I enjoyed this cute, quick, twisted fairytale story and if you are looking for something easy or a fun read with a child in your life this one will be a fun one for them and for you.
