One Potato Review

Little Red Riding Hood for red state sensibilities. “You’d look mighty good as a rug, Mister Wolf!” shouts Red’s ornery grandma. Heads up: gunfire also echoes through these Western vistas, which are otherwise full of gold poppies, and blue lupines, and orange scenic canyons to match the heroine’s hair. In spirit, this is a little like James Marshall’s mostly faithful, slightly flippant tellings of classic fables, hedging a little that children would rather laugh than lose much sleep.
