“Once upon a time there was a sweet little maiden who was loved by all who knew her . . .” So begins this classic tale about Little Red Riding Hood and her encounter with the wolf one day when she is on her way to visit her sick grandmother. Paul Galdone has drawn on the Brothers Grimm version of Little Red Riding Hood, and lends beautiful, vibrant illustrations to his exciting retelling of this classic fairy tale. Small children and Paul Galdone’s older fans will cheer as the old tale comes enchantingly alive in lovely, nostalgic, full-color pictures.
Paul Galdone (1907-1986) illustrated hundreds of children’s books, including the Basil of Baker Street series and the Anatole books, which received Caldecott Honors. He was posthumously awarded the 1996 Kerlan Award for his contribution to children’s literature.
