R is for Red

We all know the story of the Little Red Riding Hood. Here are two completely different adaptations:

Little Red: a fizzingly good yarn

In the retelling of this classic story, where Little Red is a boy, the illustration reveal America in the late 18th century.

The Girl in Red

In this realistic adaptation, the author brings the woods to the city and shows what the story always suggested but was never revealed so clearly.
