Lon Po Po is a variation of Little Red Riding Hood. The characters include Shang, Tau, Potes, Good mother, and Po Po. The children's mother leaves and tells them not to leave the house. A wolf comes along posing as their Po Po. The kids find a way to trick the wolf and drop him from the top of the tree. The wolf's heart was broken into pieces and the kids killed the wolf. The illustrations are frightening. The wolf's eyes are intimidating and pop out at you on every page.
