"A merry success, this Wild West fairy tale makes other versions look limp by comparison." --Kirkus, pointer review
"An amusing addition to the growing collection to fairy-tale spoofs." --School Library Journal, starred review
"There's a rawboned energy to the writing that invigorates the tale. The images are wittily exaggerated, with Red's impossibly shaped horse a particularly appealing absurdity." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A funny version of the familiar tale. A good choice for story hour; older kids will enjoy it, too"
