One day, Little Red Riding Hood decided to visit her Grandmother, who was ill. Her Grandmother lived on the other side of the woods.

Little Red Riding Hood packed a basket with bread, cheese and milk for her Grandmother.

„Don’t talk to strangers on the way. The woods can be dangerous,“ said her mother.

„Don’t worry,“ said Little Red Riding Hood, and gave her mother a kiss goodbye.

On the way to her Grandmother’s house, Little Red Riding Hood stopped to pick some beautiful flowers. She was enjoying the day so much that she didn’t notice a shadow approaching behind her.

Suddenly a Big, Bad Wolf appeared beside her.

„Where are you going, little girl?“ asked the Wolf.

„To my Grandmother’s house,“ said Little Red Riding Hood, „but I’m late! I have to hurry.“

And with that, she ran as fast as she could to her Grandmother’s house.

The Wolf, however, was very clever and took a short cut.

The Wolf reached Grandmother’s house before Little Red Riding Hood and knocked on the door.

„Come in, dear,“ said Grandmother. She thought that it was Little Red Riding Hood at the door.

The Wolf ran into the house and locked Little Red Riding Hood’s Grandmother in the cupboard!

Then, the Wolf put on one of Grandmother’s night gowns and a frilly bed cap and got into bed.

A few minutes later, Little Red Riding Hood knocked on the door.

„Who is it?“ asked the Wolf in his croaky voice.

„It’s Little Red Riding Hood,“ said Little Red Riding Hood, and opened the door.

When Little Red Riding Hood entered the cottage, she noticed that there was something strange about her Grandmother.

„Grandmother! What big ears you have!“ said Little Red Riding Hood.

„All the better to hear you with, my dear,“ said the Wolf.

„Grandmother! What big eyes you have!“ said Little Red Riding Hood.

„All the better to see you with, my dear!“ said the Wolf.

„Grandmother! What big teeth you have,“ said Little Red Riding Hood.

„All the better to eat you with, my dear!“ said the Wolf, and with that, he jumped out of bed and started to chase the little girl.

Little Red Riding Hood realised that it wasn’t her Grandmother at all but the Big, Bad Wolf!

A passing Lumberjack heard Little Red Riding Hood’s screams and came to the rescue.

He chased the Wolf away with his axe!

Just then, Little Red Riding Hood heard banging coming from the cupboard. She opened it to find her Grandmother inside.

„Oh, Grandmother, I was so scared!“ said Little Red Riding Hood.

„So was I!“ said her Grandmother: „Just remember, never go into the woods on your own again!“

And they all lived happily ever after.
