Author: Lari Don
Illustrator: Célia Chauffrey
Publisher: Barefoot

This book is currently unavailable.

Célia Chauffrey uses a predominantly red, pink and grey-green palette to illustrate this fresh retelling of the famous fairy tale. In this version Red Riding Hood gets eaten as well as grandma and it is a hunter rather than a woodcutter that rescues them. The pictures show our heroine to be a determined little dame, from her facial expression on the front cover onwards, who is not afraid to step from the forest path to pick flowers or sew up a wolf’s belly full of stones. Read on an accompanying CD by Imelda Staunton.
