Mother always told Red Riding Hood not to talk to strangers. But the wolf she met on the way to Granny's was so charming and urbane. What could be the harm of telling him that she was on her way to Granny's pretty yellow house on the other side of the woods? Who could be a better escort than the big-eyed, long armed, big-toothed wolf?

The inimitable James Marshall, whom Publishers Weekly described as a "specialist in absurdity," embellishes a familiar tale with irreverent flourishes that will have young readers - and their elders as well - rolling with laughter all the way through to the madcap finale.

Publishers Weekly

``A fresh, utterly funny retelling that invigorates the spirit of the classic tale,'' said PW about Marshall's characteristically wacky version--featuring a supremely sly Wolf-about-town and a heroine oozing virtue from every pore. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
