Little Red

Front Cover
Pan Macmillan, Jun 15, 2017 - Children's stories - 32 pages
Chosen as one of The New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Books 2016 Little Red Riding Hood meets a wolf on her way through the woods to visit her sick grandmother. The wolf is hungry, and Red Riding Hood looks tasty, so he hatches a dastardly plan, gobbles up Grandma and lies in wait. So far, so familiar. But this Little Red Riding Hood is not easily fooled, and this big bad wolf better watch his back. In this defiant interpretation of the traditional tale, the cheeky, brave little girl seizes control of her own story (and the wolf gets rather more than he bargained for). The perfect gift for fans of darker fairy tales, complete with tree-shaped cover flaps that make this a sumptuous sight to behold. Printed using rich pantone colours, the graphic illustrations in Little Red offer a bold, visually arresting interpretation of the classic story by Bethan Woollvin, the winner of The Macmillan Prize for Illustration 2014.

About the author (2017)

Bethan Woollvin won The Macmillan Prize for Illustration in 2014 for her classy, bold interpretation of Little Red Riding Hood, Little Red. It was a startlingly confident debut which caught the imagination of everyone who saw it. The eldest in a family of ten children, Bethan understands what appeals to a variety of age groups, and all her work exudes a natural dry wit and charm. She graduated from Anglia Ruskin University with a First Class Degree in Illustration in 2015 and now lives in Brighton.
