I think I liked this book more than I liked Rump. Oh, Rump was good, but there were times when I was getting bored wondering when something was going to happen. Not so with Red. I couldn't figure out where the story was going and I couldn't wait to find out. I liked the inter-weaving of so many different fairy tales, and I especially liked meeting the dwarves and hearing some of their points of view. Red and Goldie's friendship developed well, and it was nice to see. I would have liked to see Rump again, but oh well.
