Miss Nancy at The Storybook Shoppe recently recommended this one to us! Here's a fantastic take on an old classic, it's a practically ancient story with a modern twist. In Urgency Emergency, Choking Wolf, by Dosh Archer, a wolf is rushed to the emergency room because he has something stuck in his throat. A little girl in a red coat cannot find her grandma. What could have happened to both?
In this hysterically funny, completely age appropriate medical drama with Nurse Percy, readers find out exactly what happened to both Grandma and Wolf. The illustrations are whimsical and cartoon like, which convey the sense of comedy.
My 4-year old daughter did not immediately recognize this was a version of the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, but when I prodded her, it was like a light bulb went off and a smile ran across her face. Almost like a sequel to your favorite novel or TV show, this story offers more to a favorite tale. Older kids and young readers will get it instantly and love reading this tale!
We instantly picked up another in the series: Urgency Emergency, Itsy Bitsy Spider to find out what happened there. Would you believe it? The spider has been rushed to the hospital because the rain washed him out. Good thing the sun comes out and dries up all the rain and Itsy Bitsy gets to climb up that spout again. OUTSTANDING!
