While it was still a fun twist on the original it was lacking the woohoo! factor of some of the others in the series. Ruby Topper first gained her awesome powers of flight, laser-ray vision and extreme strength when she freaked out an alien by hugging it in Area 54. The poor alien mistook the loving squeeze for attack and accidentally left its magical red hood and cloak behind when it took off in its UFO, possibly never to be seen again. Since acquiring her new favourite outfit, Ruby has saving the Earth and moon from the nefarious plots and schemes of super-villains, unbeknownst to her mother. This adventure begins with Ruby and her mother on their way to Camp David to celebrate the granny’s (A.K.A, the President’s) birthday. On their way Ruby/Red discovers that familiar foe, Professor Grimm, is up to his old tricks. Determined to achieve world domination, Grimmy has decided to kidnap granny using his latest invention, the Big Bad Wolf-Bot. It’s up to Ruby to save the day, or else President granny won’t be enjoying any birthday cake this year! As is standard with the Far Out Fairy Tales series, the story has some cool twists on the original (which is described after the twisted version) and there are wonderful illustrations, along with visual story questions, a guide to the main differences between the original and twisted versions of the tale and a glossary for tricky words. I didn’t connect with the characters in this tale and unlike a lot of the others, I didn’t find this one funny. I liked the twisted changes that were made, especially Red’s transformation from victim to superhero. However, while this was a decent enough story, I don’t feel the need to ramble on about the wonders of this graphic novel.

    I might be a little out of the age range for this comic, but I am not ashamed to say that I really enjoyed it. I love different telling of fairy tales and I find the most enjoyable ones are written for kids. For example the Sisters Grimm series. This comic takes a whole new spin to Red Riding Hood and its great. It's filled with really funny humor and running gags. A great part is where Ruby gets her powers. It actually made me laugh out loud. I like Ruby as a hero. She is full of confidence and I might be a little out of the age range for this comic, but I am not ashamed to say that I really enjoyed it.

A very clever twist on the "my what big eyes you have" and so on. Highly recommended to anyone of any age.

    Part of the series "Far-out fairy tales" This is a well-told, well-illustrated alternate telling of Little Red Riding Hood. In this version, Red is known as Ruby, her grandmother is the president, and the big bad wolf has created a giant wolf-bot. Ruby will need all the powers of her red cape to take down the wolf and save her grandma! Love it, can't wait to see the others in the series.

There is no blood / gore and the violence is extremely tame - Warner Brothers classic cartoons are worse than this - so I'd be comfortable sharing this with kids as young as 4 or 5. - Miss Kelly

    This is a cool, futuristic, updated version of the story the Little Red Riding Hood. I think kids will enjoy reading this graphic novel. You get to see Little Red Riding Hood be a superhero and she ends up kicking the wolf's but. I think it's funny that the wolf is called Professor Grim. It's pretty clever. I also like that grandma is President of the United States. Maybe one day... This is a short and fun read and would recommend it to young readers.

    Punahilkka löysi sattuman kaupalla itselleen punaisen hilkan ja viitan, joiden ansiosta hän sai supervoimat. Punahilkan isoäiti(view spoiler)[, Yhdysvaltain presidentti, (hide spoiler)] on vaarassa tulla kidkaapatuksi, mutta onneksi punahilkka on taisteluvalmiudessa ja hoitaa homman kotiin. Tämä sarjakuva on uudelleentulkinta ja aikas menevä sellainen.

    Red Riding Hood now has super powers obtained from an encounter with an alien - definitely a twist on the original story. This series of graphic novels will hold middle readers interests and allow for comparison/contrast discussions.

    Punahilkka menee tapaamaan mummoaan, joka on Yhdysvaltain presidentti. Matkalla mummon luo on myös professori Grimm, radioaktiivisen suden purema hullu tiedemies. Tässä tarinassa Punahilkka jeesaa (jälleen kerran) kenraali Huntsmania. Mainio ja tyylikkäästi toteutettu paketti!

    My least favorite of the bunch. Grandma is president of the US, Red is a superhero with a cape from aliens, and our villain is a werewolf/mad scientist.

I love that as a series, these graphic novels provide a number of great female role models for their readers- they are simply done, so don't expect anything too radical, but for its intended audience they are great!

The books offer interesting modern versions of well known tales, authored by people active in the middle grade or graphic novel worlds. Some of the books just take the general outline of a tale and rework it completely. Other books follow the original tale but add jokes, winks and nods to the original. This book falls more into the latter category, and Frampton, (the author of a number of successful middle grade graphic novels, including the "Oddly Normal" series), does a nice job of crafting a whiz bang tale that incorporates both obvious and sly references to the original. Here, Red has a alien-tech red cape that affords her awesome super powers. She's visiting granny, but granny happens to be the President of the United States. The villain is a werewolf. And so on. More subtle jokes turn on things like Red's military contact being General "Huntsman". There's lots of action. The drawing is a bit cartoonish, but sort of high-end cartoonish, being both colorful and effective. This is fresh and upbeat stuff. It is not cynical or edgy, and Frampton embraces the positive vibe and goes with it. These are supposed to be books for younger readers. Indeed, the books in the series could easily be the first graphic novels a young, (7 to 10-ish), kid reads. They succeed admirably on that score. As a bonus, while they are accessible, understandable and entertaining, they are not puff pieces or lame franchise tie-ins. This is a good story, well told. (Please note that I received a free advance will-self-destruct-in-x-days Adobe Digital copy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)

So when I found this particular fairy tale graphic novel, I thought this might be a great way to read with him, but without forcing him to suffer through it. Overall, this was a cute adaptation to the original story of Little Red Riding Hood. While still featuring all of the main characters from the original story, this version allows Red Riding Hood to save the day for herself. This was a great twist when many of the original versions leave her and granny completely at the disposal of the huntsman finding and saving them. Also, if you are like me and you have a reluctant little reader, this graphic novel is just long enough to give them an interesting story, but also short enough that they won't feel burdened by the thought of reading it. Not only that but I'll admit I was surprised by some of the vocabulary used. With words like insolent and impertinent, this graphic novel forced my son to ask me what these words mean. He's really good at vocabulary, so I was pleased that this particular book allowed him the opportunity to learn a few new words. Also, it provides a decent reference to the original accounts of this story and how they differ from one another.

    The book is a modern day twist on the classic fairy tale of Red Riding Hood. The main characters of Red, Grandmother and the Wolf follow the same storyline basics of the original fairy tale.

Grandmother is the president of the United States of America instead of being sick at home in bed. Red is visiting her at Camp David for her birthday party. The villain in this tale is Professor Grimm who was bitten by a radioactive wolf and becomes a wolf. The story line remains the same with good winning over evil as Red destroys the evil attempt to take over the USA. The Wolf is captured and Red has saved the day. This book has vibrant graphics and rich colors that will appeal to any reader. I like the author’s use of modern references in the twist of this re-telling of a classic. The author also includes information about the original fairy tale and a glossary of words that the reader may not be familiar with. I would recommend this graphic novel to anyone who would like a quick and enjoyable read or as an introduction to graphic novels for elementary students.

    A "super" retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. My favorite quote was during Red's background: "From that day forward, Ruby Topper would be Red Riding Hood, Superhero, Protector of the Planet Earth! (And the moon. Supervillians are always trying to take over the moon for some reason.)" In addition to the story, information about the original fairy tale and the added twists are provided.

    Great new take on Little Red Riding Hood/Little Red Cap! Extremely quick read, like a regular comic, but more of a one shot. Picked this up because Otis Frampton's drawing style is my favorite for graphic novels and comics. His Oddly Normal series is great so far too :) The writing at the beginning is a little weird, but it has to explain the backstory of the characters as clearly as possible for young readers so I understand why it is the way it is.

    This is first book I have read in the Far Out Fairy Tales series, and I loved it. The story is cute and alludes to real characters and plots in the original folk tales, but also adds humor and other elements that will be interesting to children. As far as the graphic novel element, this is a great book series for young ones who need a good place to start learning how to read graphic novels and their cues. Super fun and super entertaining.

    Red Riding Hood becomes a less helpless in this awesome graphic novel. Her backstory is fantastic. Overall, this version definitely empowers the girls in the story. Grandma is the President and Red Riding Hood has superpowers. This is a fun modern retelling of the traditional story that all kids will enjoy.

    This action-packed, easy-to-read, short graphic novel provides the exact right balance of scaffolding and novelty for hi-lo readers, or any kid looking for a quick fractured fairy tale. Frampton's artwork is dynamic and provides the exact right level of detail for a story like this.

    This is a reworking of the classic Little Red Riding Hood tale and I loved it. I liked the art, the dialogue, and the clever way the original characters came into play. I loved the back story of the hood, and General Huntsman was awesome. Highly recommend.

    Really great introduction to graphic novels for smaller children, my daughter loved it. Also really liked the glossary at the back with words kids may not be familiar with, and the visual questions section which made it more interactive when we were reading it together.

    I dig it. If the Incredibles had a lovechild with the Grimms, it would be this graphic novel. It's also really cool that this series doesn't dumb it down for kids, but puts a handy-dandy glossary in the back.
