Little Red is on his way to visit his grandmother on the other side of the wood. Ignoring all warnings of wolves in the wood, he removes his coat and strays from the path. That’s when the greedy wolf, lurking in the wood, hatches an evil plan. He steals the little boy’s red coat and hurries to the cottage to gobble up Little Red’s shortsighted grandmother. But once the wolf’s had his dinner, he’s ready for dessert… meaning Little Red is next on the menu! But can a keg of delicious sparkling ginger beer save him from a gruesome end?

With settings from the fabulously quirky ‘Ye Olde Belch’ Inn to grandmother’s eerie old cottage, this witty reworking of the classic tale is perfectly adapted to 18th-century England and is bursting with period detail.

Other titles in the series: Cinderella and Rapunzel.
