Little Red Hood
Publisher: Phoenix Yard Books
Little Red Hood wonders unwittingly into the path of the Big Bad Wolf who has designs on eating her until he is distracted by Little Red Hood’s compliments on his 'big ears', 'big eyes' and 'big teeth'.
Little Red Hood innocently offers the wolf a sweet to hide his ‘stinky breath’ and he ends up choking to death in this violent twist on the classic tale. This modern Little Red Hood can take care of herself and certainly doesn’t need any woodchopper to rescue her.
With its dark humour, edgy illustrations in red and black pencil and looped handwritten text, this stylish pocket-sized picture book will appeal to older children and adults.
