Description

A classic retelling of Little Red Riding Hood's encounter with a wicked wolf while visiting her grandmother.

Gennady Spirin, in his adaptation of the Brother Grimms' earliest version of "Little Red Cap," tells the story of a young girl in a red hood who takes a cake to her sick grandmother. Along the way, she meets a wicked wolf who tricks her into thinking he's her granny. Sumptuous illustrations, inspired by the golden age of Dutch painting in the 17th century and Renaissance, capture the charm and spirit of a tale that has remained steadfast in oral and written versions throughout the centuries. An author's note about the tale's history is included.
