Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Once upon a time there was a sweet little maiden who was loved by all who knew

her . . .”

So begins this classic tale about Little Red Riding Hood and her encounter with the

wolf one day when she is on her way to visit her sick grandmother. Paul Galdone has

drawn on the Brothers Grimm version of Little Red Riding Hood, and lends beautiful,

vibrant illustrations to his exciting retelling of this classic fairy tale. Small children and

Paul Galdones older fans will cheer as the old tale comes enchantingly alive in lovely,

nostalgic, full-color pictures.

Synopsis:

"BUT GRANDMOTHER, WHAT BIG TEETH YOU HAVE!" Paul Galdone's version of this timeless classic comes to life with stunning illustration and beautifully crafted prose.  A great gift!

About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
