Everyone knows the story of Little Red Riding Hood. But how many know the story of Little Red and Aunt Rosie's spot medicine? It goes like this...
One morning, Aunt Rosie woke covered in spots. Little Red heard the phone ring and when she heard Aunt Rosie's news, she loaded up her basket with spot medicine and set off to help her aunt accompanied by a small and delighted sheep. Her path takes her "under the giraffes, over the sleepy crocodiles, and past the chattering monkeys."
Is there a wolf you wonder? No, I don't see one but there is a very hungry lion with a "very naughty plan."
Now, Little Red is a very clever little girl and she's also very good at braiding hair...and lion manes.
Highly entertaining with just the right bit of suspense and twist.
