Giggle Book Award: Red Riding Hood Deconstructed

dThe August 2015 Giggle Book Award!

I’ve read this book many times to the kids in my life and listened to them quote the book back to me at random moments throughout the day. I honestly don’t know if they are remembering the book or the funny voices I make while reading it.

If you enjoy reading children’s books as though they were theatrical performances (yes, I do this), then this book is made just for you! In fact, this is a perfect candidate for a reader’s theater performance – if you are a theater student looking for Reader’s Theater (AKA: Chamber Theatre or Interpretive Theatre) material…you’re welcome.


“So let’s see if I have this right. The Red hood is on her way to help an old lady when she meets the Wolfman. He has an evil plan. He likes to dress up in girl’s clothes and eat people. He and Red have a big battle, and Red’s father puts an end to Wolfie.

Well…Sort of…

It’s not a very nice story, is it?”

The Cat, The Dog, Little Red, The Exploding Eggs, the Wolf and Grandma by Diane and Christyan Fox
