Despite her mother’s warning to go straight to Grandmother’s house, Little Red Riding Hood stops along the way to converse with a wolf, who seems kind and suggests she pick some flowers for her sick grandmother. When Little Red Riding Hood finally arrives at her grandmother’s cottage, she discovers the sneaky wolf is dressed as Grandmother and lying in bed, just waiting to gobble her up! A warning to all children to be wary of strangers, this folk tale has been enjoyed by families for over two hundred years.
