Oh my, what a wicked retelling of Red Ridding Hood.... I was wondering just how the bear would play in this tale, but he fit in just wonderfully. It was very easy to figure out just who inspired this story, especially when the red cloak came into play. I really wish this story was longer, as it was filled to the brim with action & traditions, WOW what a tradition the villages this story is set around... 'Scarlet and the Bear' is novella 4 in Cara's "Fairy Tales with a Sift" series.. I can't wait to read what Fairy Tale is Shifted in the next novella.
