Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Older kids will be captivated by the cleverly told story, with its vibrant illustrations and slightly dangerous tone, and they will understand the lessons. Younger kids may be attracted by the cover and the paintings, but the story isn't for them.

The friendly-looking tiger on the front cover is a trick. He is all smiles, and definitely looks like he wants to play. But, look out! Inside, he becomes a mean-spirited, ferocious character, bent on devouring the two little sisters. He is the wolf in the Little Red Riding Hood stories, and he too is up to no good.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
