What to expect

"Once upon a time there was a village child who was so pretty - so pretty as never was seen . . ."

So begins Beatrix Potter's retelling of Red Riding Hood. Filled with the delicious darkness of the original classic fairy tale - and some trademark Potter wit and flourishes - this book is brilliantly brought to life with artwork by one of the world's greatest illustrators, Helen Oxenbury.
