  • Excellent

    The Yellow Hoods is a cute romp with a nice twist on a well-loved fairytale. Its main protagonist is Tee, a spunky 12 year old who likes to invent things with her grandpapa and go as fast as she can in her sail cart. Along with her friends, Elly and Richy, she goes on an adventure to save her grandpapa from the dreaded LeLoup, or the Wolf. Along the way, there was some nice character development for Tee. The setting was well realized and the steampunk aspect fit right in believably. The pace was just right and kept the pages turning. And that ending! Definitely makes me want to read the next book!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great book

    I enjoyed the mixture of steam punk and and fairy tale. I will definitely be reading the series. I just bought the next 2 books. I wish you could but all 5 books at once, and not just the first three.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • 3+ set steam punk meets revamped fairy tales

    Not kindle unlimited, got the trilogy {plus} set by whining at the writer that he wasn't on ku, sometimes that works, but only bother to do it if really want to read the book{s}. Do you remember any of the fairy tales or nursery rhymes you heard when you were little? How about Rub-a-dub-dub, Simple Simon, Chicken Little, Humpty Dumpty, or Santa Clause, Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, Rumpelstiltskin, Beauty and the Beast, or Alice in Wonderland? Want or need your memory jogged? This is, but isn't, those stories. In the first book when Steampunk meets fairy tale, inventions and inventors, fairy tales are real, and a secret society named Tub is led by a butcher, a baker, and a candlestick maker, and are caught in someone else's plot to steal the first steam engine plans. Want to picture the lands, just look at the first page illustration. Want to more about everything that happened? Read the book{s}. Along Came a Wolf (The Yellow Hoods #1) Breadcrumb Trail (The Yellow Hoods, #2) All the King's-Men (The Yellow Hoods, #3) The Yellow Hoods Boxset (Books 1-3) {includes mini-book 2.5: Snappy & Dashing Beauties of the Beast (The Yellow Hoods, #4) The Day the Sky Fell (The Yellow Hoods #5) Snappy & Dashing: A Yellow Hoods Companion Tale #1 (The Yellow Hoods) {2.5} {this is standalone but best read if you can at the end of 2 before 3} This has a serial story type feeling to it, which is not necessarily a bad thing, and seems longer than the usual serial, just noting it. This was more the type of fairy tale would have read when younger Hated the ones read to me, why I started reading by myself at age 4} and fits in nicely with the reworked fairy tales getting more predominate lately. THIS one actually got free before got the 3+set.

  • Kick Butt Fairy Tale

    Adam Dreece has taken threads from a variety of fairy tales and nursery rhymes and woven a story to capture the imaginations of a new audience. In this initial tale of the Yellowhoods series, we meet Nikolas Klaus, his daughter, Jennifer, and 12 year old granddaughter, Tee. Tee is one of the Yellowhoods. She and her friends are called this because of the yellow cloaks they wear. Nikolas is an amazing inventor. His abilities are well known, but not the specifics of his inventions. “The Wolf” shows up looking for Tee’s Grandpa to see what “goodies” he may have that could be exploited. Who is more wily? The Wolf, The Yellowhoods, or Mr. Klaus? If you enjoy fairy tales with a kick, laced with action and adventure, I would recommend Along Came a Wolf. I’m betting you will want to continue with the rest of the Yellowhoods ‘ tales.

    Thanks for your feedback!
