Synopsis

When Little Red Riding Hood sets off to deliver muffins to her grandmother, you can bet that a big bad wolf isn't far behind!
Set on the midwestern prairie, this is a Little Red Riding Hood that will captivate youngsters with its feisty heroines and bold humor. Especially to be relished is the way the story line plays against the classic tale's plot, with laugh-provoking lines that show true wit. As the dastardly wolf chuckles, appreciating his own schemes, the text soars, suspense builds, and vibrant pictures bring out all of the fun.
