The path through the woods to Grandma’s house has never looked as beautiful as in this retelling of the classic story. Francesca Cosanti’s atmospheric, wonderfully detailed art captures the looming trees, the texture of the wolf’s fur, and the hominess of Grandma’s cottage. Children will be fascinated by every remarkable illustration, from the evocative landscapes to the image of Riding Hood reflected in the Wolf’s glittering eyes.
