Key Features


On their grandmother's birthday, three children are left at home when their mother goes to visit her. Little do they know that a hungry wolf is waiting for her to leave. He disguises himself as an old woman and knocks on the door.
Won't they let their grandmother in? The eldest granddaughter, Shang, is fooled. She opens the door. The little ones are so happy to see their Po Po. And Po Po is happy to see them; they're so sweet and plump.
One thing is the same throughout the world: A big bad wolf is a big bad wolf. But he's never a match for a clever girl with a plan, and Po Po won't know what hit her in this exciting Red Riding Hood story.

"[This] gripping variation of Red Riding Hood...is an outstanding achievement that will be pored over again and again." - School Library Journal
Winner of the 1990 Randolph Caldecott Medal.
