Little Red Gliding Hood - a Literary Lunch

This lunch is also posted over at The Little Crooked Cottage as a Literary Lunch. Head over to the fabulous blog of four children's book authors and check out the wonderful Literary Interviews with Mr. Pig himself!

Little Red Riding Hood is one of our favorite fairy tales.We LOVE Tara Lazar's clever fractured fairy tale spin, Little Red Gliding Hood, illustrated by Troy Cummings.

In this sweet retelling of the well known fairy tale, Little Red uses her ice skates to navigate the enchanted forest and to skate to Grandma's every Sunday. Her skates are worn out and broken and she must win the Pairs Skating Competition to win BRAND_NEW SKATES. The only problem is: everyone in the enchanted forest already has a partner. This book is beautifully illustrated and the story is as sweet as can be. Can you guess who might help her compete in the Skating Competition?

I created an enchanted lunch in our Easylunchboxes, perfect for any winter fun:
  • Organic MySuperCookie Honey Heroes competition spectators and, of course, brand new chocolate skates with sparkling sprinkles
  • enchanted berry yogurt with chocolate wolf decorations
  • a Little Red Gliding Hood jelly and chocolate sandwich.
Here are a few of the things I used to make this lunch (contains affiliate links):


  1. Love this idea, what a perfect lunch box idea.. I need to get more creative with my son's lunches.. This looks delicious too!

  2. So creative and cute! I'd better not show my 8yro. She'll beg me to make it for her!

  3. This is beyond adorable. Maybe if I made my daughter's sandwiches look this cute, she'd be a little more enthusiastic about eating them!

  4. This is so adorable! I love the idea of a Literary Lunchbox <3
