Finally - beautiful to look at & edgy as it should be,
This review is from: Little Red Riding Hood (Hardcover)
I have poured over picture book after picture book trying to find classic tales that were not watered down, facetious tongue-in-cheek retellings of tales that were meant to disturb and teach. This is a beautiful telling of Little Red Riding Hood. I get so tired of cartoon-y illustrations or the new computer-generated "art". This is a beautifully painted story with the classic gore so needed in a folk/fairy tale.
I won't go into the morals of letting children watch TV, but then not allow them to experience the triumph of good over evil in fairy tales, but I will say that children need this kind of dramatic resolution in a story.
Loved this book!
