Revolting Rhymes: Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf


I guess you think you know this story . . .

Meet Red Riding Hood as you've never seen her before in this darkly comic twist on a classic fairy tale.

After Wolfie gobbles Grandmamma in one big bite, he turns his attention to Red Riding Hood. But little does he know, this girl has a dastardly plan of her own.

With brand-new and wickedly funny illustrations, this splendiferous rhyming picture book is perfect for chiddlers who like their fairy tales with a splash of daring and danger! The first in a brand-new picture book series featuring Roald Dahl's iconic Revolting Rhymes.

This picture book edition of Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf is a version of the original text by Roald Dahl first published in Revolting Rhymes in 1982, and as such the content reflects the attitudes and culture of the time.
