AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The innocent Red Riding Hood hops on her scooter and sprints through the forest to bring her Grandma delicious ginger cupcakes. Unfortunately the elegant Mr Wolf lives in the forest and he hasn't had a succulent meal in a while... Will Red Riding Hood be able to get safe and sound to Grandma's cottage? Will Grandma be there waiting for her? Will Mr Wolf get a succulent meal? Go on reading and you'll find out. But be careful, not everything is what it seems in this quirky, fun and imaginative adaptation of an old classic tale.' Source: (Sighted 19/10/2011).
