Cloaked in Red

Story Summary

Little Red Riding Hood, the truth ... Ruby Marie's fairy godmother had intended to wish her goddaughter intelligence at her naming-day ceremony, but through a series of confusions wished intelligence for her red cloak by mistake. With nothing to be done, she laid the cloak in the cradle and from that day forth the cloak had to put up with its young, clueless owner. But many years and owner's later the very smart cloak was found by a certain superhero who was able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
