Betsy Red Hoodie

Gail Carson Levine, illus. by Scott Nash, Harper, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-06-146870-4
In this uproarious adaptation, a companion to Betsy Who Cried Wolf! Betsy, along with her flock of opinionated sheep, sets out to bring cupcakes to Grandma. Betsy also brings fellow shepherd Zimmo the wolf, ignoring her friends' warnings. But when Zimmo disappears, Betsy begins to lose faith in her friend and in her ability to lead the talkative, troublesome sheep. Nash and Levine's twist ending ensures a happy ending, and the sheep's speech bubble cacophony ("The moral is: Wolves are good for grandmas." "Some wolves are grandmas." "Some books never end") provides an entertaining backdrop to a surprisingly tense story. Ages 4–8. (Sept.)
