Description

A minimal, edgy, and hugely entertaining retelling of the story of Little Red Riding Hood including a style of illustration that falls somewhere between graffiti and high art


Stylish and very funny, this book retells the famous story in an unexpected way. The wolf is still big and bad, but he also happens to be really, really dumb. Little Red Hood questions the wolf's personal hygiene before tricking her predator into his demise. This is one savvy little red hood.


 

Reviews

"Leray’s startling, pared-down scenes show what drama can be achieved with one red crayon, a little black ink and immense French style. Well done Phoenix Yard for introducing a British audience to this. It’s totally brilliant." Amanda Craig, The Times, Saturday 19th February 2011
