What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

In this inspired rendering of the classic Grimm Brothers folktale, five-time Caldecott Honor winning artist Jerry Pinkney introduced two favorite children’s characters to a new generation: the sly, scary wolf and the sweet little girl in her famous red hood. Readers will squeal with delight all over again during that most memorable scene when Little Red Riding Hood declares, “Oh, Grandmamma, what great teeth you have!”

Pinkney’s charming, masterfully-wrought illustrations–as warm and cozy as LIttle Red’s cloak and as captivating ast he clever wold himself–are sure to lure you into the heart of this treasured tale.

A beautiful retelling of the classic story with Jerry Pinkney’s gorgeous illustrations. It doesn’t stray far from the original, but the winter setting gives it a little puff of fresh air!
