Little Red Riding Hood
Little Red Riding Hood. I finally decided to buy this version, in the local bookshop, because I quite liked the images. They were lush with bright colours nd the Big Bad Wolf looked menacing enough without being too scary. It is a good rendition of the tale overall, although I find it slightly odd that among the things Little Red Riding Hood brings to her grandmother there is... blackcurrant juice. I don't remember any versions from my childhood that had blackcurrant juice. Wolfie loves it anyway, even though he does not follow the story: he just stares in awe at the images and... chews the corners. But he usually smiles when I put it in his hands.
