Carmine: A Little More Red

by Melissa Sweet


And, as Carmine takes off on her bicycle with Rufus, that is just what she intends to do. But Carmine is a dreamy painter, always in search of capturing just the right hue in her drawings, and this drawing—the one she begins in a lovely forest clearing just off the path to Granny’s—must be her best yet.

Here is a new, lively retelling of a timeless tale with enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing until the very end.
