Shelf Control: Don't Be Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf In Nosy Crow's Little Red Riding Hood

Just a few days ago, I finished reading "Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm" by Philip Pullman. Of course, any Brothers Grimm fairy tale collection wouldn't be complete without "Little Red Riding Hood." And it's nice to see that Pullman's includes the story in a new English version. But hey, what's your version of the story? You can answer that question by downloading Little Red Riding Hood by Nosy Crow, which is currently featured as an Editors' Choice in the App Store and is featured right now in Shelf Control. [caption id="attachment_408528" align="aligncenter" width="480"] Little Red Riding Hood by Nosy Crow for iPhone[/caption] The "Little Red Riding Hood" you most probably know ends with the woodsman slashing the big bad wolf's stomach to rescue the devoured title character and her grandma. Well, Little Red Riding Hood by Nosy Crow ends rather nonviolently and rather differently … in different ways. You see, in Little Red Riding Hood by Nosy Crow, Grandma is only locked away in a cupboard. Moreover, the big bad wolf is defeated by Little Red Riding Hood herself by using three mostly harmless objects on him. And what those objects are and how the story ends are up to you and your little one. [caption id="attachment_408520" align="aligncenter" width="480"] Little Red Riding Hood by Nosy Crow for iPad[/caption] That's because Little Red Riding Hood by Nosy Crow is essentially a choose-your-own-adventure story. It lets readers play games and decide which way to go at forks in the path in order to help Little Red Riding Hood collect three different objects. For example, as recounted by the big bad wolf in the trailer below, you may end up with feathers to tickle him with, dandelions to make him allergic, and honey to throw at him.
