I was privileged to receive an advanced reader copy of Henry, Josh & Harrison Herz’s delightful new picture book, Little Red Cuttlefish.

This is a quirky new take on the Red Riding Hood story and is beautifully illustrated by Kate Gotfredson. Little ones and their parents will enjoy reading this one over and over.

She may be spineless, but this invertebrate has a lot of backbone!

Little Red jets off to take fresh crab cakes to her grandmother. Everything goes swimmingly—until a big, bad tiger shark attacks! Little Red has to use her cuttlefish defenses—camouflage, quick reflexes, and squirting an ink cloud—to outwit the shark, combining science and spunk. Gorgeous illustrations depict the reef and its adorable main character with lively detail. The authors include information about cuttlefish and tiger sharks, addressing Common Core standards, as well as resources for further reading. This aquatically fractured fairy tale will tickle your cuttlebone and spark your curiosity. After reading, remember to sleep tight—and don’t let the copepods bite!
