Hungry Like the Wolf: Re-Tellings of the Red Riding Hood Tale

Over the years, Little Red Riding Hood, a story that originated in France and was authored by Charles Perrault, has been adapted and re-told many times. It remains a fascinating tale and the West End Interim Library welcomes families with children ages 3-7 to attend a Kid's EuroFest story-time that will present several versions of the classic tale. The story will become new and exciting again for those who have heard the classic version before, and will be enjoyed by those experiencing it for the first time.
