This was a really good and modern retelling of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, and I liked the way that Scarlet was trying to deliver a cure to her grandmother to stop her turning into a werewolf! It was also funny how werewolf granny told her off for using bad language when she was trying to eat her!
Well worth a read!

Little Red Riding Hood, we all know the tale. There are endless amounts of versions of the story, but the basics are always the same…until now.

In Better Off Red the author takes the classic tale and spices it up a bit for the modern, possibly classics jaded, reader. I’d rather keep it short with my review of the story to allow readers a fresh read of this great story. Having read Laura Bradley Rede’s other short work, it wasn’t disappointed in the least. This may actually be my favorite story so far. Well-written, great development of well-known characters, original alterations. I couldn’t have asked for anything different.
