Little Red Riding Hood (Softcover)
A Caldecott Honor Book
A Golden Kite Award--Picture Book

A stunning edition of the classic fairy tale, reimagined and illustrated by a Caldecott medalist.

Traveling alone, deep in the woods, Elisabeth suspects her basket of treats isn't the only thing a sly wolf is after . . .

Surrounded by an abundance of wildflowers, mushrooms, pinecones, and birds, Elisabeth heads off in her red cloak to visit her ailing grandmother. She's all alone--until she is joined by a wicked wolf, who urges her to stray from her wooded path.

Framed with hand-drawn patterns and textured vignettes, Trina Schart Hyman's illustrations add intrigue to the familiar story, filled with subtle detail and depth.

With the help of a brave woodsman, Elisabeth and her grandmother are saved--and Little Red Riding Hood learns a valuable lesson.

Little Red Riding Hood, a Caldecott Honor Book, received a Golden Kite Award--Picture Book as well as many other awards and accolades. A classic of children's literature, this retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale brings new life to an old favorite with illustrations that children will linger over.
