Oh to have an exploding egg, or two

A review of The Cat, the Dog, Little Red, the Exploding Eggs, the Wolf, and Grandma by Diane Fox

Cat would like to read a simple story about a little girl who wears a redhood and takes a basket of goodies to her grandmother’s house. At least that’s what Cat is trying to do. Dog has other ideas. And questions. Lots of questions. What’s the little girl’s superhero power? After all she is wearing a cape. Does she hypnotize bad guys? Why doesn’t the wolf eat little red riding hood in the woods? Does little red have a Kindness Ray? Are the eggs in the basket exploding eggs? In fact Dog is driving Cat to distraction. After all, this is supposed to be a simple story about a girl, a wolf and a grandmother. This book is sure to inspire giggles among the 4 – 8 year-old set. And if your little ones like this one, give Interrupting Chicken, by David Ezra Stein a try as well.
