A classic of children's literature, this Little Red Riding Hood retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale brings new life to an old favorite with illustrations that children will linger over.
Surrounded by an abundance of wildflowers, mushrooms, pinecones, and birds, Little Red Riding Hood heads off in her red cloak to visit her ailing grandmother. She's all alone--until she is joined by a wolf, who urges her to stray from her wooded path.
With the help of a brave woodsman, Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother are saved, and Little Red Riding Hood learns a valuable lesson.
Framed with hand-drawn patterns and textured vignettes, Trina Schart Hyman's illustrations add intrigue to the familiar story, filled with subtle detail and depth.
Little Red Riding Hood was a Caldecott Honor Book, and received a Gold Kite Award for Picture Book Text.
