"Once upon a maritime..." begins this underwater twist on the classic. Red snapper dons her favorite squid tasseled hat and sets out to grandmother's house with a fresh-baked octopi. Red meets up with the Wolf Eel in the kelp forest and again in Grandma's oyster bed with an amiable surprise ending. Full of fishy puns and details for sharp eyes, Little Red Snapperhood is a fun romp under the ocean.
