Crazy Bargain Price: Cloaked In Red by Vivian Vande Velde

Cloaked In Red (Kindle Edition) by Vivian Vande Velde is 85 cents. And Cloaked in Red (Hardcover) is even less at 80 cents. I don't know how long this will last. But I paid $9.99 for the hardcover and 99 cents for the Kindle edition.

The book also made an appearance in my What Is Your Library Saying? post yesterday.

I mean really. Can you pass that up? And be quick because that price can't last long.

Book description:

So you think you know the story of Little Red Riding Hood, the girl with the unfortunate name and the inability to tell the difference between her grandmother and a member of a different species? Well, then, try your hand at answering these questions: Which character (not including Little Red herself) is the most fashion challenged? Who (not including the wolf) is the scariest? Who (not including Granny) is the most easily scared? Who is the strangest (notice we're not "not including" anyone, because they're all a little off.)? Who (no fair saying "the author") has stuffing for brains? Master storyteller Vivian Vande Velde crafts eight new stories involving one of the world's most beloved (and mixed-up) characters in literature. You may never look at fairy tales in quite the same way again.

And one of the reader reviews says, "Interesting Idea. I'd Love To See This For Other Fairy Tales."

Ha! Vande Velde herself has several not to mention so many others discussed here at SurLaLune. I wish she would apply the concept to Beauty and the Beast myself, not that she has dealt with Riding Hood and Rumpelstiltksin (The Rumpelstiltskin Problem), to name a few.
