Little Red Riding Hood is a young girl, so called because of the red cloak she wears. One day her mother asks her to take some food to her sick grandmother, who lives in a clearing in the nearby forest. On the way to her grandmother, she meets an apparently friendly wolf, and since she had many friends in the animal kingdom, sees no harm in stopping to talk with him. But the wolf is not as he appears to be! The wolf has sinister plans and Little Red Riding Hood?s sweet and trusting nature may soon prove to be her downfall. Loved by generations of children and adults alike, this classic tale teaches children to always be mindful of strangers and not to simply trust everyone they meet.
