This is a fun story with all of the characters from fairy tales. Little Red Riding Hood is the main character who wants to get new ice skates to replace her worn out pair. There is a pairs skating competition and the prize is a brand-new pair of skates. She didn’t like any of her partner choices. The wolf came and destroyed the competition because everyone was scared. But little did they know that he and Little Red Riding Hood were the perfect partners and of course won the skates. This is a little twist on the traditional tale but fun none the less.
