Cloaked in Red

So you think you know 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? Well, then, try your hand at answering these questions: Which character (not including Little Red herself) is the most fashion challenged? Who (not including the wolf) is the scariest?

Cloaked in Red Reviews

  • Soobie can't sleep at night

    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 more complex versions.

    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 rea ...more

    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 ...more

  • Joan

    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!

  •  Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

    Quite honestly, I liked the idea of this collection more 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. Cleve ...more

  • Ms. Patterson

    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 is ...more

  • Jessica-Robyn

    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 more different styles then just the classic

  • Small Review

    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
