What's Red Riding Hood About

Publisher Summary

Mother always told Red Riding Hood not to talk to strangers. But the wolf she met on the way to Granny’s was so charming and urbane. What could be the harm of telling him that she was on her way to Granny’s pretty yellow house on the other side of the woods? Who could be a better escort than the big-eyed, long armed, big-toothed wolf?

The inimitable James Marshall, whom Publishers Weekly described as a “specialist in absurdity,” embellishes a familiar tale with irreverent flourishes that will have young readers - and their elders as well - rolling with laughter all the way through to the madcap finale.

Who Wrote Red Riding Hood

author & illustrator
James Marshall

James Marshall (1942-1992) created dozens of exuberant and captivating books for children, including The Stupids, Miss Nelson Is Missing!, and the ever-popular George and Martha books. Before creating his canon of classic, hilarious children’s books, James Marshall played the viola, studied French, and received a master’s degree from Trinity College. He also doodled. It was the doodles, and the unforgettable characters that emerged from them, that led him to his life’s work as one of the finest creators of children’s books of the twentieth century. In 2007, James Marshall was posthumously awarded the Laura Ingalls Wilder medal for his lasting contribution to literature for children.
