Oh, reader, what big teeth you have!
The better to devour RED: THE TRUE STORY OF RED RIDING HOOD.
Can’t get enough of the new fairy-tale-retelling trend? Don’t miss Liesl Shurtliff’s new dark, humorous stand-alone middle grade novel RED: THE TRUE STORY OF RED RIDING HOOD (on sale April 12, 2016)!
Liesl Shurtliff spins a spellbinding tale, shining the spotlight on one of the most beloved characters from her award-winning debut, Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin. This isn’t the Little Red Riding Hood from the canonical children’s tale. Shurtliff’s Red is strong, independent, brazen, and not afraid of anything . . . except magic. But when Red’s granny falls ill, it seems that only magic can save her, and fearless Red is forced to confront her weakness. Readers will gobble up this bewitching fantasy as they join Red on her journey of discovery through the sinister dangers of the enchanted dark forest.
Liesl Shurtliff’s first book, Rump, won over kids and critics alike, earning an IRA Award, a Texas Bluebonnet nomination, a Whitney nomination, and a starred review from Kirkus, proclaiming it “as good as gold.”
In RED, Liesl Shurtliff is at her best. New York Times bestselling author of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library Chris Grabenstein raves that “Liesl Shurtliff has truly out-magicked herself. Red is the most wonder-filled fairy tale of them all.” RED will capture the hearts of readers who like it Grimm, as well as followers of ABC’s TV show Once Upon a Time.
Fancast by the author!
She’s got the look, the smirk, and the attitude. She was the perfect snob in Pretty Little Liars and she’d make the perfect Little Red.
Curls and all! This girl would be adorable as Goldie.
She does everything spot on perfect and I can’t get enough of her. I laugh every time she opens her mouth in Downton Abbey.
Aside from having great hair, he’s a wonderfully versatile actor, something that would be very important for this role.
I loved him in Elf and think he’d make a perfect Borlen. He’s a grumpy dwarf, but in a likable sort of way.
The beast in Red is female and I think Zoe Saldana would be perfect.
I loved her in Guardians of the Galaxy. She has the perfect mix of badass with just a dash of vulnerability that makes her real and not overdone.
