Little Red Riding Hood (From Monday)

Once upon a time there was a girl called Little Red Riding Hood because she always wore a scarlet coat with a crimson hood.

Early one morning, her mother said, “Take this basket of food to your grandmother but whatever you do, don’t dilly dally on the way,” Into the basket she put- a slice of fruit cake, a juicy apple and a large, yellow cheese.

So, Little Red Riding Hood walked, and she walked, and she walked till she came to the middle of the forest. The forest was dark, and she could barely see where she was going. Tired from so much walking, Red Riding Hood rested under a huge tree. Whistling happily, along came the woodcutter.

“Where are you going?” he asked and Little Red Riding Hood explained.

Unfortunately, a grey wolf was hiding behind a tree and listening to everything that they were saying. Greedily, it licked its thin lips, pawed the ground and ran off to find Grandma’s cottage.

When Little Red Riding Hood reached Grandma’s cottage, she let herself in. Grandma was lying in bed, but she looked very strange.

“Oh Grandmama, what great big ears you’ve got,” said Little Red Riding Hood.

“All the better for hearing you with,” replied Grandmama.

“And what big eyes you’ve got.”

“All the better for seeing you with,” replied Grandmama, leaning forwards.

“And what big hands you’ve got.”

“All the better for hugging you with,” replied Grandmama, smacking her lips.

“And what big teeth you’ve got.”

“All the better for…eating you with!” shrieked the wolf triumphantly, leaping from the bed.

Little Red Riding Hood screamed as the wolf opened its huge jaws.

Luckily, at that moment, the woodcutter dashed into the cottage and killed the wolf with not one, not two, but three mighty blows from his axe! For he had seen the wolf following Little Red Riding Hood through the forest.
