With his red hoodie on and his bicycle basket full of food, Federico is ready to visit Abuelo. But on the way, he meets a hungry wolf. And now his grandfather bears a striking resemblance to el lobo. Fortunately, Federico is quick and clever—and just happens to be carrying a spicy surprise! Federico drives the wolf away, and he and Abuelo celebrate with a special salsa. Recipe included.

Glossary of Spanish words. Full-color illustrations were done in Photoshop.

Gomez delivers a fresh and creative retelling of “Little Red Riding Hood.” Federico has an important errand to run. He must ride his bike and deliver groceries to his grandfather’s home in the woods. The grocery basket is filled with delicious herbs, onions, bread, pickles, and more. Then a cunning wolf appears out of nowhere with a plan of its own. The main character, a boy of Mexican heritage, wears a red hoodie revealing a Mohawk hairstyle and an amused expression. The text flows naturally in a rhyming structure that highlights vocabulary words in English and Spanish. The colorful illustrations use a combination of bright and soft palettes. The wolf is a young, energetic, and expressive antagonist who’s likely to appeal to readers. This title has a more humorous tone than its original version, making it ideal for discussions on retellings. A delightful picture book with animated illustrations that are sure to attract readers.
