Little Red Riding Hood: A Sparkling Fairy Tale by Nicola Baxter


Little Red Riding Hood: A Sparkling Fairy Tale by Nicola Baxter

Once upon a time there was a young girl who lived in a cottage at the edge of a forest, and one day she went to visit her sick grandmother...Children will be thrilled by the adventures of the kind-hearted Little Red Riding Hood as she travels through the woods, pursued by a wily wolf. Exquisite illustrations sparkle on every page, making this timeless tale even more memorable. It is great for reading aloud to small children, or for more confident readers to enjoy by themselves. Little Red Riding Hood got her name because she loves to wear the red cloak her grandmother made for her. One day, Little Red Riding Hood's mother learns that Granny is not feeling well. I'll go and see her! says Little Red Riding Hood. That will make her feel better. So she puts on her cloak and sets off along the forest path to Granny's house. Her mother warns her to go straight there and not to talk to anyone on the way. However, deep in the forest, Little Red Riding Hood meets a wolf. He suggests that she stops to pick some wild flowers for her grandmother, and the young girl cannot resist picking a big bunch. When she finally arrives at the cottage, she finds the door slightly ajar, and Granny looks very strange indeed. What big eyes she has...and what big ears...and what big teeth...Shiny elements on every page of this delightful boardbook bring this popular fairy tale to life, highlighting the pretty details in the rustic homes of Little Red Riding Hood's mother and grandmother, and the natural beauty of the forest.
