Little red riding hood — pop-up!

My kids and I are big fans of Little Red Riding Hood, and then especially of the scary wolf. I love building up the story to the famous part where LRRH exclaims ‘But grandmother, what big teeth you have…’! My kids scream every time, it doesn’t matter that it’s the gazzilionth time they’re hearing it!
This is why I couldn’t resist getting them this wonderful pop-up book. It has beautiful, artistic sepia illustrations by Louise Rowe — the book really is a pleasure to look at. (I will have to do something with those leafy trees soon… I’m thinking an art project?)
Available through our UK bookshop.

P.S. The story of Little Red Riding Hood dates back to the middle ages when it warned against the dangers of the forest. I love little Trivial facts like these!
