Cornelia Hoogland takes the story of Little Red Riding Hood and turns it inside out in this sensuous Canadian retelling.

Editorial Reviews

"Poet and dramatist Cornelia Hoogland is an expert at spinning fables, and nowhere is this more evident than in the earthy sexual tension exploding between a B.C. Wolf and a girl named Red." - BC Book World

"Brilliant and stark, Hoogland's poems are an imagistic treat, green as tadpoles in a pickle jar, red as 'rain the shade of lips by Chanel.'" - Winnipeg Free Press
