A good story can change. In The Girl in Red, acclaimed illustrator Roberto Innocenti offers a modern take on the centuries-old tale of an ailing grandmother, a wicked wolf, and a young girl in a red coat. Innocenti's brilliantly detailed illustrations present a city as a wilderness, while text by Aaron Frisch narrates the journey of a girl named Sophia through the twists and turns of a stormy day.
