Little Red Riding Hood’s untold and true story. Why she was wearing a Red hood. Who her Grandma really was. What the wolf actually wanted. Where she fits in the Dreamworld. And what Ladle Rat Rotten Hut means.

     I think Ladle
Rat Rotten Hut
had the best twist, and maybe also the scariest (though it
wasn’t very scary), out of all the sequels I’ve read so far, even if it
combines two of them (I thought there were 3). It was also a better job in
combining multiple fairy tales than the last one I read. While staring at the
title before reading it, I was extremely inquisitive why the author would use a
strange title.
     I never
figured it out until later in the story, when Red goes on her first journey
following her mother’s footsteps and meets a wolf boy relaxing (so it seems)
and reading a book. She later finds out who she really is, along what her
mother and grandmother really are. I’m really surprised with what the
grandmother really is, though that seemed to be hinted throughout the story. It
didn’t give it fully away until the second we actually do find out.
     What I
really liked was the creative way with the English language Mr. Jace uses
throughout the story. But maybe I should also thank the original creator of
it… which I’ll leave anonymous for the rest of you to ponder on (unless you
know it already).
