“Once upon a time there was a village child who was so pretty - so pretty as never was seen…”
So begins Beatrix Potter’s retelling of Red Riding Hood. A darkly delicious adaptation of the classic tale, filled with trademark Potter wit and flourishes, little Red Riding Hood sets off to Granny’s house with a very hungry wolf in tow.
But nobody saw her pass.
Brilliantly brought to life with artwork by one of the world’s greatest illustrators, Helen Oxenbury, this is the perfect gift for Beatrix Potter fans, big and small.
Oxenbury’s pictures are glorious in their scene setting and loveliness of line—Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
