Synopses & Reviews
Our shaped book of The Three Bears has been so popular, we think, no only because it is beautifully illustrated, but also because it retells one of the handful of fairy tales which are and essential part of every child's growing up. We wanted another shaped book of an equally elemental tale, and we think we have found it in this version of Red Riding Hood, illustrated by Gladys Hall. It, like The Three Bears, dates from about 1910.
Our most popular title, this version of the elemental tale of a little girl, her grandmother and a scary wolf is illustrated by Gladys Hall and dates from around 1910. It is rendered in bright primary colors, and the little girl - Rosie - is utterly adorable in her gingham dress and red cloak. The wolf is vanquished, Rosie is saved, and all ends well in this most gentle of Red Riding Hoods.
