About this product
- DescriptionWho but James Marshall could transform the classic fairytale of Red Riding Hood into a wickedly funny spoof? Granny isn't feeling up to snuff today, says Red Riding Hood's mum, so Red Riding is on her way to the other side of the woods with a tasty custard pie in tow - that will cheer Granny right up. But, suddenly, an irresistably charming wolf appears (wearing a delightful straw hat) and insists that (the very trusting) Red Riding Hood be escorted to her granny's. Can you guess what happens next? I'm wicked. So wicked, says the Wolf and t only does he gobble up poor old Granny ...but Red Riding Hood too! Tasty. So tasty, he says, patting his full belly. After-dinner mints and a siesta follow BUT, of course, the trusty hunter comes to the rescue in the end (phew!). Granny's sole complaint, as an avid bibliophile, is: It was so dark in there I couldn't read a word.
- Author BiographyJames Marshall is one of the most prolific and successful author/illustrators of children's books. With more than seventy-five books to his credit, including the popular George and Martha series and the misadventures of the Stupid Family, Marshall has earned the admiration and love of countless readers. Maurice Sendak said of Marshall: His work is undated, fresh and fragrant as a new spring garden. James Marshall died in October 1992. He divided his time between an apartment in New York and his home in Connecticut.
