Sabrina’s heart rose upinto her throat when she saw the last name on the list. The little girl in the red cloak who had taken her parents was Little Red riding Hood! Now that it was right in front of her, she felt stupid. How could I not figure that out? But how could she. She’d read the story many times. Little Red riding Hood was one of the good guys. She wasn’t evil. She was a victim. Why would she kidnap Henry and Veronica Grimm?
