Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A beautifully illustrated rendition of an old favorite. Children will continue to love the travels of Little Red Riding Hood.
The little red riding hood story retold. This book is a little more close to the original with its graphicness so you might want to censor it with younger readers (the little girl and the grandmother do get eaten, the woodman chops off the wolfs head, etc.). Not a bad thing, you just have to be aware of it before reading to a young audience.
A beautifully illustrated book for a classic children's fairy tale.
