Book Review #368
Lon Po Po by Ed Young
Rating: two stars (out of four)

I liked the illustrations for this book, but I'm not sure they are well suited for young children.  Some of the images are a little frightening, especially certain ones of the wolf.  I thought the children were rather resourceful, if not a little indifferent at times.  I mean, if some of those things had happened to me, I would not go to bed peacefully, I'd still be shaking from the encounter.  I'd probably recommend this book with a disclaimer about the scariness.  But I did think it was an interesting take on the little red riding hood story.
