A smart, snappy, bilingual retelling of Little Red Riding Hood
Winner of a Pura Belpre Honor for Illustration

While Roja picks flowers on the way to her grandma's, a mean wolf sneaks away with her cape to surprise Abuelita. But Grandma's no fool and Roja's no ordinary chica. They send that hungry lobo packing with a caliente surprise!

This spirited retelling of Little Red Riding Hood has accessible Spanish rhymes and hip cultural details throughout.

Susan Middleton Elya's (susanelya.com) books have been described as "Perfect for bilingual classes stretching their English wings and a charming way to introduce Spanish to English speakers."  She lives in Danville, California.

Susan Guevara (susanguevara.com) won the Pura Belpre Award for Illustration for her work in Chato's Kitchen and Chato and the Party Animals. She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
