Retelling of a Chinese folk tale, about a wolf that tricks three children into believing it is their grandmother. I know that the subtitle (A Red-Riding Hood Story from China) is supposed to draw Western readers in, but it kind of rubs me the wrong way since the story is thought to well predate the European version, and there's no red hood in sight.
