Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion

Publisher: Scholastic

Little Red sets out to visit her auntie, who is poorly. She walks under the giraffes, over the sleepy crocodiles, past the enormous elephants, and by the chattering monkeys. Then a Very Hungry Lion approaches, wanting to gobble her up! But despite all his cunning plans, Little Red proves much smarter than Lion, and soon takes charge…

This appealing spin on the classic fairy-tale by bestselling illustrator Alex T Smith is set against a vibrantly coloured African landscape. Visually stunning, with lots of clever touches that will make both parents and children smile, this is a warm and fun-filled take on a much-loved story that young readers will find impossible to resist.
