Little Red (a pencil) leaves her classroom tasked with finding a story worth writing. Almost at once, she becomes bogged down by descriptors, carried away by an endless string of words full-of-stick, and frightened by adverbs "suddenly, abruptly, and surprisingly" catching her off-guard. Play on words, parody, and humor cleverly entertain and show readers how parts of speech can enrich or misguide a reader's experience. Melissa Sweet's illustrations fill every page with informative, playful visuals to perfectly round out this storytelling feast.
Publisher Summary
Acclaimed writer Holub and Caldecott Honoree Sweet team up in this hilarious and exuberant retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, in which a brave, little red pencil finds her way through the many perils of writing a story. Full color.
