200-word review of Twisted Fairy Tales: Little Rude Riding Hood by Jo Franklin

My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Goodreads rating: 3.65 with 51 ratings (as of 3/25/2020)

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Once upon a time, a fairy tale went very wrong! This new twist on a traditional children's story is packed with fun, humour, and energy.

Little Rude is incredibly cheeky to everyone that she meets. She doesn't even know the meaning of "please" and "thank you!" However, that could all change when she meets a surprisingly polite wolf on her way to Grandma's house.

Will Little Rude's constant insults drive even this newly reformed Big Bad Wolf over the edge? This riotously funny remix on the traditional fairy tale will delight children and adults alike.

Goodreads rating: 4.07 with 1,148 ratings (as of 1/22/2020)

Synopsis from Goodreads:
"Are you really a thief?"

That's the question that has haunted fourteen-year-old Ezekiel Blast all his life. But he's not a thief, he just has a talent for finding things. Not a superpower--a micropower. Because what good is finding lost bicycles and hair scrunchies, especially when you return them to their owners and everyone thinks you must have stolen them in the first place? If only there were some way to use Ezekiel's micropower for good, to turn a curse into a blessing. His friend Beth thinks there must be, and so does a police detective investigating the disappearance of a little girl. When tragedy strikes, it's up to Ezekiel to use his talent to find what matters most.
