Little Red is the story of a boy, a grandmother, a big bad wolf, and a keg of delicious fizzy ginger beer.

Young Thomas is known as Little Red. He lives with his parents in a cosy inn, famous for its sweet and fizzy ginger beer. Every week, Little Red visits his grandmother with food and a keg of the ginger beer. But on this visit, grandma doesn’t quite look herself. Can Little Red save Grandma, and himself, from the big bad wolf – perhaps with the help of a certain fizzy beverage?

This highly imaginative spin on the classic tale is set in the late eighteenth century – a time of big wigs, satin gowns, beauty spots, powdered faces and wicked highwaymen!
