About the Author
TROY CUMMINGS has been writing and illustrating since he was a little kid. Among other things, he’s the creator of Giddy-Up, Daddy!, the tale of a man mistaken for a horse, and The Eensy-Weensy Spider Freaks Out! (Big-Time!), another creative spin-off (pun intended) of a favorite kids’ rhyme. He lives in Greencastle, Indiana, with his nice family and mean cat.
Praise For Little Red Gliding Hood…
"The reliably fun concept of odd-couple ice skaters is perfectly meshed into a clever narrative enhanced by candy-colored artwork ripe with inside jokes. This one begs to be read, both over the river and through the woods." —Booklist, Starred
"An icy enchanted forest is home to a bevy of fairy tale characters, including Little Red Gliding Hood, an ice skater set on winning a new pair of skates in a skating competition. Lazar packs her story with fairy tale-based jokes....Cummings's cartoons feel as slick as ice, creating a playful backdrop for Lazar's wintry nursery rhyme punning." —Publisher's Weekly
"No skating on thin ice here--it's a winner." —Kirkus Reviews
"A wonderful winter-themed fractured fairy tale with so many clever details that kids will want to read again and again." —School Library Journal
