The traditional story of Little Red Riding Hood is given new dimensions in this striking play between light and shadow. Little Red Riding Hood is a fair tale loved the world over. Almost every child knows the story by the Brothers Grimm of the girl who was lured from the forest path by the evil wolf. Now, everyone can rediscover it with this enchanting little book by French illustrator Clementine Sourdais, who gives a contemporary look to this traditional tale. Created with loving attention to detail, Sourdais's cut-out images give the book an extraordinary khaptic quality that make it a pleasure to feel and behold. Her unique settings not only make the woods, the big bad wolf, and grandmother's house come alive on the page, but they can also be transformed into a dancing play of shadows on a wall. Held in front of a light and unfolded, this book becomes a true adventure, inviting its young readers to marvel at and experience Little Red Riding Hood's journey in a whole new way.
