There is no happily-ever-after for this Little Red, but there are plenty of eye-popping, jaw-dropping twists in Little Dead Riding Hood, part of the Scary Tales Retold series from Wiley Blevins. Channeling its Grimm roots, this and other classic fairy tales are given a decidedly dark and sinister makeover, with illustrations by Steve Cox that fluctuate somewhere in between creepy and endearing. Gallows humor will have young fans of the paranormal simultaneously giggling and cringing as Dead Riding Hood haunts the village children. Perfect for the next generation of thrill seekers who aren’t afraid of the big bad wolf.
