Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

" . . . what big eyes you have!"

Originating in seventeenth-century French folklore, the story of Little Red Riding Hood has long been one of the world's most memorable tales of childhood, with its haunting journey into the dark woods, tumultuous encounter with the big, bad wolf, and heroic rescue. This new gift edition presents the Brothers Grimm version of the tale, fully unabridged with a visionary interpretation by renowned artist Daniel Egnéus that captures both its horror and its romance.

About the Author

Wilhelm Grimm and his brother Jacob are famous for their classical collection of folk songs and folktales, especially for Children’s and Household Tales, generally known as Grimm’s Fairy Tales.

Even if I didn't have children or students, I'd still buy the book.

Daniel Egneus has taken one of the old fairy tales and turned it into exquisite book with amazing illustrations and beautiful text.

We all know the story of Little Red Riding Hood, and this is the traditional story of her and the wolf.

As a second grade teacher, I was hesitant to present this to my kids, due to the somewhat graphic tale of cutting open the wolf (and...GASP...the villain dies at the end!) But the absolutely gorgeous artwork, script, and true adherence to the original tale won me over. I find myself gazing at the pictures long after reading this story aloud to any child who will listen. And yes, the wolf dies at the end of the tale, but isn't that how the story used to go? Not the edited, cleaned up version where all parties scamper off with little harm done. And isn't that the way it should be? If you eat g-ma, you deserve your end, I say. Even if I didn't have children or students, I'd still buy the book. It is beautiful!!

Little Red Riding Hood by The Brothers Grimm and Illustrated by Daniel Egneus is an artistic delight to the story you knew growing up. Fans of the classic tale and those who love art will treasure this special edition of the fairy tale.

Little Red Riding Hood is a story that most of us grew up with in childhood, and have seen new takes on it lately in the movie "Red Riding Hood" and on the hit ABC TV show "Once Upon A Time." Although I do enjoy new versions of it, there is much to be said about the Brothers Grimm version, too.

This special edition of the tale is visually beautiful and tells the tale like I remember it originally being. The artwork included throughout the book is gorgeous, and for everyone that loves this tale, it is sure to be a treasured book. I also think that it would make an amazing gift to someone who also likes the tale, and even for those younger children who may not have heard the tale before. Kids that own this book will definitely have one of the cooler fairy tale books on their bookshelf. I highly recommend it.

The only reason I bought this book was for the illustrations. I wish the illustrator had prints available of what's in the book.

We all know the story of Little Red Riding Hood, and this is the traditional story of her and the wolf. The reason to own this book is for the fantastic artwork. I keep picking it up and flipping through the pages. I love to collect sort of "creepy" books to read to my grandchildren (strange, but true), and this is a keeper!!!!

i was going to give this book to my great grandson, even though i thought the cover to be unusual for a Grimm's tale. alas my suspicions were correct. i cant understand what the interest in it would be for a young child, or perhaps that was not the intent, but if not that, what

Daniel Egneus has taken one of the old fairy tales and turned it into exquisite book
with amazing illustrations and beautiful text.
His play on light and dark, both in colour and the concept of evil is superb.
A definite book of the young at heart.
