Description

Bullies. Friends. Boys. Shakespeare. Demonic dogs. Evil spirits. You know, Sixth Grade. Sixth grade is hard enough. When the school bully is on your case because you got the lead in the play instead of her, when the cutest boy in the whole class might actually like you but never makes a move, and when your dad is an alcoholic and you have to cook, clean, and take care of your little brother, the last thing you need is more trouble. But Sally Prescott has more trouble than she ever imagined when she starts having strange dreams of demonic dogs, magical keys, and a wolf-headed spirit bent on her destruction. Her best friend knows a secret that may help, but she refuses to tell, claiming Sally made her promise not to. As Sally's dreams start bleeding into reality, she realizes she is the only who can save her family. With a little bit of magic and a lot of determination, she'll get one chance to change her destiny and theirs. If she succeeds, she'll solve her problems at home and at school. If she fails, she'll lose everyone she ever loved. Turns out sixth grade is tougher than she thought. Little Red Riding Hoodie: A Modern Fairy Tale is a contemporary take on the classic story. Blending surrealism and magic with a modern middle school setting, it is a story of bravery in the face of hopelessness, taking responsibility when others won't, and finding your inner strength. Funny and sweet, scary and strange, Little Red Riding Hoodie celebrates friendship, love, and courage at that most awkward time of life - middle school.show more

About John Phythyon

John R. Phythyon, Jr. wishes he were a superhero or a magician, but since he has not yet been bitten by a radioactive spider or received his letter from Hogwarts, he writes adventure stories instead. He has written several other modern fairy tales, including adaptations of "Sleeping Beauty" and "Beauty and the Beast." He has also penned several comical memoirs about his misadventures growing up in the 1970's ("My True-Life Adventure" series), and he is the author of the Wolf Dasher fantasy-thriller mash-up novels. Prior to becoming a novelist, John was an award-winning game designer, so you know this whole grownup thing still isn't really working for him. He lives in Columbus, Ohio, with his wife, their children, two dogs, and a cat. It is rarely quiet, but it's often entertaining. His current projects include more funny memoirs, world peace, and desperately wishing for the Cincinnati Bengals to win a Super Bowl in his lifetime. Connect with John online at his website, www.johnphythyon.com, where he blogs regularly about his writing and just about anything else that is on his mind. You can follow John on Twitter at @JohnRPhythyonJr, and on Facebook at facebook.com/johnrphyrthyonjr.
