This traditional version of Little Red Riding Hood, by the Brothers Grimm, has haunting pictures that illustrator Lisbeth Zwerger made using an ink and wash process. Little Red Riding Hood wears a red cap in this story and therefore gets the name Little Red-Cap, however, the story follows the traditional plot line with wolf beating Little Red-Cap to grandmother's house, eating them both up before the hunter comes to save them both.
This would be an excellent choice for sharing the traditional story with young readers. Due to the fact that the paintings look like water color it would be a fun activity to have students water color an additional scene from the story, or recreate one done by Zwerger. These could be put together to make a class retelling of Little Red-Cap.
