This may be my favorite Little Red Riding Hood version. It's a Chinese folktale, where the children must be clever to save themselves from a wolf that comes knocking when their mother is away. I loved the agency of the children, the artwork, and the dialog that gives lots of room for voices when reading it aloud.

Most amazingly, Marian -- my 5 month old -- listened to the entire book straight through! And it's a longer picture book! She was rapt the entire time. Quite an amazing feat.
