Once upon a time on a midwestern prairie, a little girl wearing a red- hooded jacket is riding her bike when she meets a hungry wolf. Now, the wolf isn't wanting to harm Little Red Riding Hood -- he only wants her grandmother's secret muffin recipe. When the wolf secretly follows Red Riding Hood, he is surprised in the field by her tractor- riding grandma. Does the wolf attack grandma? Is he able to get his paws on her secret recipe? This new twist on a classic fairy tale will keep you turning pages until the surprise ending.

I like the original "Little Red Riding Hood" better than the Newfangled Prairie tale.
