A darkly comic retelling of the classic fairytale Little Red Riding Hood - a bold heroine for our times.

About the Author

Bethan Woollvin won The Macmillan Prize for Illustration in 2014 for her classy, bold interpretation of Little Red Riding Hood. It was a startlingly confident debut which caught the imagination of everyone who saw it. The eldest in a family of ten children, Bethan understands well what appeals to a variety of age groups, and all her work exudes a natural dry wit and charm. She graduated from Anglia Ruskin University with a First Class Degree in Illustration in 2015 and now lives in London.

Reviews

Bethan Woollvin's version [of Little Red Riding Hood] has a far darker ending - and I loved it. The talented illustrator and writer has taken a childhood niggle as her premise for this bold feminist version of the story: would our caped heroine really have been taken in by a wolf in a bad grandma disguise? . . . I won't spoil the ending but let's just say Little Red wraps it up nicely (and warmly) and it has my three year old son thrilled at every read, begging for more. * The Times *
A talent to watch * Daily Mail *
This is my book of the year so far . . . Woollvin is a striking new talent with strong retro style illustrations and a simple, witty text. * Angels & Urchins *
A unique interpretation of the classic fairytale, shot through with dark humour and a stunning, bold graphic style. This brave girl not only defeats her foe, she wears the wolfskin home too. * The Bookseller *
A joy to read . . . An impressive debut picture book from an exciting new talent. * BookTrust *
Its strong lines and bold colours are excitingly modern * New Statesman *
