A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book
The big bad wolf has a plan...but so does Little Red Girl power abounds in this fractured fairy tale smash from author-illustrator Bethan Woollvin.
"This is how fairy tales were meant to be told." ―School Library Journal
On her way to Grandma's house, Little Red meets a wolf. That might scare some little girls, but not this little girl. She knows just what the wolf is up to, and she's not going to let him get away with it.
In this update to "The Little Red Riding Hood," author-illustrator Bethan Woollvin (creator of Hansel & Gretel, Rapunzel, and Bo the Brave) employs a feminist twist along with sly humor, striking visuals, and a bit of ingenuity to turn a familiar tale on its head for modern readers. Perfect for mighty girls as well as for all young readers who love fairy tales.
