From Publisher's Weekly:  "In Red Riding Hood, a novel that 22-year-old Sarah Blakley-Cartwright has written based on a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson, the plot of the traditional fairy tale has thickened substantially. On sale January 25, this Little, Brown/Poppy book ties into the Warner Brothers film that is set for March release. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke of Twilight fame (who contributes an introduction to the novel), the movie stars Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, and Julie Christie."

The Los Angeles Times also profiled the author who is a "graduate of Barnard College's creative writing program."  Blakley-Cartwright's book made The New York Times best sellers list of "Children's Paperback Books."
