Red Riding Hood Paperback
Illustrated by James Marshall
Who but James Marshall could transform the classic fairytale of Red Riding Hood into a wickedly funny spoof? "Granny isn't feeling up to snuff today," says Red Riding Hood's mum, so Red Riding is on her way to the other side of the woods with a tasty custard pie in tow - that will cheer Granny right up.
But, suddenly, an irresistably charming wolf appears (wearing a delightful straw hat) and insists that (the very trusting) Red Riding Hood be escorted to her granny's.
Can you guess what happens next? "I'm wicked. So wicked," says the Wolf and not only does he gobble up poor old Granny ...but Red Riding Hood too! "Tasty. So tasty," he says, patting his full belly. After-dinner mints and a siesta follow BUT, of course, the trusty hunter comes to the rescue in the end (phew!).
Granny's sole complaint, as an avid bibliophile, is: "It was so dark in there I couldn't read a word.
