Little Red Riding Hood by Lari Don (Author), Célia Chauffrey (Illustrator)

Little Red Riding Hood by Lari Don (Author), Célia Chauffrey (Illustrator) was released last month and is a fun interpretation of Little Red. It comes with a CD to listen to the story, too. I haven't seen this one in person yet, but the sassiness of LRRH comes across in the images. I bet this one bests the wolf all on her own. Or so I hope!

Book description:

Little Red Riding Hood loves to visit her Granny's cottage in the forest. Her mother warns her to go straight to Granny's, but when she meets a handsome grey wolf, she doesn't see the harm in stopping for a chat. Scottish storyteller Lari Don's retelling of this well-loved tale is lively and exciting with a wolf who is just scary enough for younger children to enjoy. Célia Chauffrey's finely detailed paintings create an enticing world of quirky characters in a dark and mysterious forest. Comes with storytime CD featuring narration of the text by beloved English actress Imelda Staunton.
