" Is this truly a children's book? Although the words themselves are true to the story, the pictures depicted make the story feel grimy, dirty, like something to avoid. I bought it for the children's graphic novel section after reading several reviews, but now I'm not too sure. " said.

" Totally a great visual and adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood. A little more creepy since it is all modern in a city, with a man as the wolf. It is good to teach children of the dangers of the wold but this was really dark. Atleast it still ended with on a happy note but barely. " said.

" Definitely not a book for young children, despite its picture-book format, The Girl in Red is a modern Red Riding Hood story set in the forest of a lurid city. Strangely, some of the imagery in this book reminded me strongly of dreams I've had. " said.

" Pornography in picture books and morbid besides. Wow! I've probably read some 7,000 picture books in my lifetime and this takes the cake in disgustingly inappropriate. Found it on the "newly purchased" showcased shelf in the library where the youngest children congregate. Sick. " said.

" Beautiful, realistic, and very detailed artwork by Roberto Innocenti, some in panels, and some double-page spreads. This modernized version of Little Red Riding Hood presents both a sad and a happy ending. " said.

" There is so much to ponder in this one. The illustrations are incredibly detailed and lively. I think you can tell right off the bat that this is not an American production, and indeed, it is Italian. If I taught children's literature, I'd want my students to take a gander at this Little Red Riding Hood retelling. " said.

" A new innovative way of reading the tale of Little Red Riding Hood! The format is different and quite an eye opener!The opening lines read, "Look up all you want, but you never really know what's coming." That really sums this book. You never know what is going to happen next, but keep turning the pages to see the outcome. The effort is well deserved! A gem from Italy! " said.

" I feel bad saying this because I appreciate creative retakes on classic fairytales, but I didn’t enjoy this version at all. I didn’t like the art, the layout, anything. It reminded me of a really horrible cultural art collection that for whatever reason acquires great reviews and is unjustly displayed next to real art. " said.
