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.
