Little red riding hood

A fairy tale from the collections of Charles Perrault and the brothers Grimm. A girl called Little Red Riding Hood (after the red, hooded cloak she wears) meets a wolf in the woods while traveling to visit her sick grandmother. When she tells him where she is going, the wolf takes the short way there, swallows the grandmother, puts on her clothes, and climbs into her bed to wait for Little Red Riding Hood. She arrives and exclaims, “Grandmother, what big eyes you have!” “The better to see you with, my child,” says the wolf. “Grandmother, what big teeth you have!” remarks the girl. “The better to eat you with!” replies the wolf, who then devours Little Red Riding Hood. A huntsman rescues both the girl and her grandmother by cutting the wolf open.
