The Wolf's Story

By Toby Forward
Illustrated by Izhar Cohen

The real story of Little Red Riding Hood – told by the Wolf himself!

Recounted in the confidential, conversational voice of a New York wheeler-dealer, this funny version of the Grimm Brothers' Little Red Riding Hood is retold from a fresh perspective – the Wolf's! Full of humorous revelations and surprises, the story shows, as it unfolds, how a series of misunderstandings and accidents leads to his vilification.

  • A clever, post-modern take on an established fairy tale classic.
