Recycling Red Riding Hood by Sandra L. Beckett

Recycling Red Riding Hood (Children's Literature and Culture)

Recycling Red Riding Hood (Children's Literature and Culture) by Sandra L. Beckett is one of two books by Beckett about the fairy tale. Of all of the books I've been featuring for LRRH week, this is one I do not own and really can't tell you more about it. However, here is the standard description and table of contents information.

From the publisher:

Sandra Beckett's book explores the contemporary retelling of the Red Riding Hood tale in Western children's literature.

"Beckett's book is a welcome addition not only to fairy-tale scholarship, but also to the study of intertextuality and postmodernist play, whether thay play is textual or pictorial." Cathy Preston, Marvels & Tales
