Praise For Little Red Cowboy Hat…
“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” —Booklist
