Betsy is finally old enough to take cupcakes to Grandma all by herself—with the company of her faithful sheep, of course. And although wolves aren’t good for grandmas, Betsy lets her best friend, Zimmo, come along too. But will Zimmo’s wolfish instincts make Grandma the tasty treat instead?

In her second picture book starring the feisty young shepherd Betsy, Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine teams up once again with Scott Nash to put a hilarious twist on an old favorite. This reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood is sure to delight readers from little lambs to cupcake-loving grandmas.

"Levine's well-paced, straightforward storytelling plays nicely against the broad comedy in Nash's color-washed ink drawings. Full of action, zaniness, and a few metamoments in which characters crawl out of the story, this makes a good companion to David Wiesner's similarly fractured THE THREE PIGS (2001)."--Booklist
"The wry humor of the herd, who crack jokes and banter in speech bubbles alongside the narrative, will appeal to children and lends comic relief to the story of a difficult journey."--School Library Journal
"In this uproarious adaptation, Nash and Levine's twist ending ensures a happy ending, and the sheep's speech bubble cacophony provides an entertaining backdrop to a surprisingly tense story."--Publishers Weekly
"There's a glow and a flow to the pictures that add shine to the story."--ALA Booklist
Praise for Betsy Who Cried Wolf: "A must-have."--Kirkus Reviews
"Nash stages the shenanigans in an attractive country landscape, supporting Levine's light tone with comical pen drawings of the round-faced, energetic Betsy. Good read-aloud fun."--The Horn Book
"Tongue-in-cheek funny, this is sure to find a place alongside Betsy's earlier escapade."--Kirkus Reviews
