The Cat, The Dog, Little Red, The Exploding Eggs, The Wolf and Grandma's Wardrobe by Diane and Christyan Fox, Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

 September 2014, Frances Lincoln Children's Books, 32 pages, Hardback, Review copy

Content: lots of humour 

Summary from Frances Lincoln
This book is the first in a character-led series about these two irresistable and indomitable personalities.

Cat is trying to read a much-loved and classic children’s fairy tale to Dog. Parents will sympathise with Cat as he suffers question after question from inquisitive Dog.

Nayu's thoughts
If you think you know the tale of Little Red Riding Hood think again. I adore the story, and was in fits of giggles as I read this version. The illustrations are simple but effective especially with the witty banter between the two characters as they discuss the tale. Readers of all ages will appreciate the humour, especially those who have read more than one version of the classic tale. Yes, there really are exploding eggs in this version! I've never encountered them before now, but they fit in the story rather well.
