Little Red Ridinghood

by Micha F. Lindemans
Another nursery story by Charles Perrault (Le Petit Chaperon Rouge), common in Sweden, Holland, Germany, and France. The story tells of a little girl, wearing a red riding hood, who brings cookies to her grandmother who lives in the woods. When she arrives there, her grandmother has already been eaten by the wolf and the girl suffers the same fate. In the finale, a huntsman arrives and slits open the wolf, thus restoring Little Red Ridinghood and her grandmother to life, but that is a later German addition.
