Lotsa Little Red Riding Hoods

The Children's/Fantasy Illustration Blog has shared many illustrations of Little Red Riding Hood in the past month.  I am sharing them here.  I haven't had time to investigate the illustrators further, but if you leave a comment about any favorites, I will try to learn more.  For now, just enjoy the pretty pictures and one of everyone's favorite fairy tale characters... (Would that be LRRH or the wolf?)

  1. I love the one by Ludwig Knaus especially - all the bright gold-green and spots of color in the meadow, but as sunny as it is you still get the sense of a young girl that's gone off the path and is quite alone (even though her diverted route into a meadow seems peaceful at the moment...)
