Little Red Ruthie by Gloria Koster
“ Clever little Ruthie is way shrewder than her fabled namesake Little Red Riding Hood. Carrying her basket of sour cream and applesauce en route to her grandmother’s house to make latkes, she is waylaid by a very hungry,very big, very bad wolf. Brave as a Maccabee, she persuades him to wait while she fries a batch of latkes, and when he has gorged himself into oblivion, she sends him on his way with a jelly donut for dessert. Safe and sound, Ruthie and Grandma eat their own latkes and light the first Hanukkah candle."
