In Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion, author and illustrator Alex T. Smith playfully reimagines a classic fairy tale by giving it a safari twist.
Why we like it: Little Red is on her way to her Auntie’s house to deliver a basket of goodies and some spot medicine. She romps by giraffes, crocodiles, monkeys, meerkats and more. When she sees a very hungry lion, he comes up with a very naughty plan, but Little Red is clever and teaches the very hungry lion some manners. Every fan of Little Red Riding Hood will want to make certain they see this creative version.
