Red Riding HoodLittle Red Riding Hood is a traditional story from Germany. A girl has to deliver a basket of goodies to her grandmother. But a wicked wolf finds out where she’s going, rushes ahead to granny’s house and swallows poor granny in one gulp! The wolf dresses up in granny’s clothes and lies in bed, waiting for Little Red Riding Hood. Red Riding hood spots the trick too late! She’s also swallowed in one gulp.
