The classic tale set in early 19th century New England. Softcover 32 pages - Ages 4-8

Retold & Illustrated by Andrea Wisnewski
Into the forbidding but beautiful New England winter steps a resourceful farm girl in her scarlet cloak, bound with her basket of presents for her ailing grandmother. Any child can tell you what happens next-and Wisnewski’s ingenious retelling doesn’t disappoint. The images are rendered in black-&-white prints, cut with a blade from black paper and then hand-painted in vivid watercolors. This is a beautiful, and totally original, American reimagining of the German fairytale classic, set in the depths of winter and here reissued in paperback on its tenth anniversary. And yes, we know you are concerned; she does survive the ravenous wolf-moist but intact.
