The Lovereading4Kids comment
A lyrical and atmospheric fairy tale with a twist, inspired by Little Red Riding Hood. It is a powerful combination of menace and beauty, with the sensual surroundings of the woods and the wild creatures who live there.
Little Evie in the Wild Wood by Jackie Morris
Little Evie ventures into the wild woods with her basket of jam tarts and walks further and further into the trees, far from home. In a deep dark cave she finds - a huge wolf. The wolf comes closer and closer and then - Evie and the wolf share the tarts, sitting on the grass. Afterwards the wolf gives Evie a ride home on his back.
'The wind sang a soft song high in the tree tops. The wood pigeons called a soft-voiced warning.'Be careful, Evie, be careful, Evie. She looked back and could just see the bright gold of the field in afternoon sunshine, like a gold ring behind her..'
