Little Red

by Bethan Woollvin

The big bad wolf has a plan…but so does Little Red! Fractured fairy tales meet girl power in this hit New York Times Best Illustrated Book from author-illustrator Bethan Woollvin.

“This is how fairy tales were meant to be told.” ―School Library Journal

On her way to Grandma’s house, Little Red meets a wolf. Which might scare some little girls, but not this little girl. She knows just what the wolf is up to, and she’s not going to let him get away with it.

In this updated fairy tale with a feminist twist, author-illustrator Bethan Woollvin (creator of Hansel & GretelRapunzel, and Bo the Brave) uses sly humor, striking visuals, and a bit of bravery and ingenuity to turn a familiar tale on its head for modern readers. Perfect for mighty girls as well as for elementary education units on fairy tales!
