Synopsis

A witty twist on a favourite fairy tale, Little Red was a New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book. The perfect gift for fairy tale fans of all ages, complete with tree-shaped cover flaps, and bright, bold colours that make this a sumptuous sight to behold.

Little Red Riding Hood meets a wolf on her way through the woods to visit her sick grandmother. The wolf is hungry, and Red Riding Hood looks tasty, so he hatches a dastardly plan, gobbles up Grandma and lies in wait. So far, so familiar. But this Little Red Riding Hood is not easily fooled, and this big bad wolf better watch his back. In this defiant interpretation of the traditional tale, the cheeky, brave little girl seizes control of her own story (and the wolf gets rather more than he bargained for).

Printed using rich pantone colours, the graphic illustrations in Little Red offer a bold, visually arresting interpretation of the classic Little Red Riding Hood story, by Bethan Woollvin, the winner of The Macmillan Prize for Illustration.
