Little Red Writing - a Literary Lunch

Do you love the story of Little Red Riding Hood? Well, then you will absolutely adore this hilarious retelling of the original story by Joan Holub and Melissa Sweet: Little Red Writing!

Acclaimed writer Joan Holub and Caldecott Honoree Melissa Sweet team up in this hilarious and exuberant retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, in which a brave, little red pencil finds her way through the many perils of writing a story, faces a ravenous pencil sharpener (the Wolf 3000)... and saves the day. -

We packed a picnic lunch worth taking through the literary forest in our new Tri Bento from ECOlunchboxes (I only packed food in two of the layers, the third layer contained a smoothie pouch):
  • cucumber trees
  • wild strawberries
  • yogurt raisin mushrooms
  • mini leaf shaped peanut butter sandwiches decorated with cheese words
  • a Little Red Writing cream cheese sandwich with fresh strawberries and cheese and nori features
  • a salad, carrot and cucumber forest

Little Red Writing on her way through the Literary Forest. 

And I had some trouble keeping the food in the lunch box until lunch ;) Someone thought they could snatch a strawberry or two while I was distracted trying to get a good picture! Of course the owner of the little hand got some strawberries after the pictures. 

Now head over to The Little Crooked Cottage for an exclusive Mr. Pig LIVE! interview with Little Red Writing and to see my lunch over there!

Things I used to make this lunch (contains affiliate links):


  1. This sounds like a cute book. I love your lunch. Strawberries make the perfect red for your pencil.

  2. Very cute! :) I love the cucumber trees.
