Art: Little Red Riding Hood(ie) by Artist Cary Dunlap Daly
My thinking (I guess) was to get Little Red Riding Hood out of that story... she's been stuck there for far too long. The large block of text reads: "The wolf peers out. The hunter bursts in. Little Red Riding Hood, utterly fed up with the insinuation that she lacks the intelligence to discern a cross-dressing wolf from her dear granny, begins her quest for a better starring role." Above the wolf is a handwritten note from Red (dictated by my 10 year old son for realism) which says: "Dear Granny, This story sucks. I'm going to find a better one. Love, Red." And the wolf, still thinking he's pulled off granny bit, says: "Darling, come back & give Granny a kiss..."
