I wanted to let everyone know that the book I’ve been involved in putting together for the past year is finally published and available to purchase. I adapted two “Grimm” versions of the same story into one graphic and gory tale entitled “Little Red Riding Hood: A Deliberate Lesson of a Horrible Consequence.” My writing is far from the reason why you should get this disturbingly lovely book right away. The real star of the project is artist Dana Cline’s meticulous use of pointillism to bring the story to life through vibrant illustrations.
Here’s the product description of the book from Amazon.com:
“Adapted from the originals, this cautionary tale warning young women about the dangers of strangers is definitely not for a younger audience. Gruesome fates await the young ladies who stray from the straight and narrow, disregarding parental warnings and proceeding without thought. Eric Shirey has resurrected this intentionally horrific lesson by artfully weaving two of the earliest known versions of Little Red Riding Hood. Illustrated to deliberately detail Grandmother's and Red's hideous ordeals, be careful with smaller children who may find this too frightening.”
