Little Red

£5.99

Description

Little Red is on his way to visit his grandmother on the other side of the wood. Ignoring all warnings of wolves in the wood, he removes his coat and strays from the path. That’s when the greedy wolf, lurking in the wood, hatches an evil plan. He steals the little boy’s red coat and hurries to the cottage to gobble up Little Red s shortsighted grandmother. And Little Red is next on the menu! But can a keg of delicious sparkling ginger beer save him from a gruesome end? With settings from the fabulously quirky ‘Ye Olde Belch’ Inn to grandmother’s eerie old cottage, this witty reworking of the classic tale is perfectly adapted to 18th-century England and is bursting with period detail.

By setting it in a new period (18th century America), the illustrator refreshes a story everyone knows, and employs all sorts of amusing touches, and a highly distinctive style, in his innovative and unusual approach. The book demonstrates superb draughtsmanship, a brilliant use of perspective, and great sense of light; all in a wonderfully subtle colour palette.
