Once upon a time there was a little girl who wore a beautiful red cape. Since the girl used it very often, everyone called her Little Red Riding Hood.
One day, Little Red Riding Hood’s mother called her and said:
—Grandma doesn’t feel very well, I’ve baked some cookies and I want you to take them to her.
“Of course I do,” answered Little Red Riding Hood, putting on her cape and filling her basket with freshly baked cookies.
Before leaving, his mother told him:
— Listen to me very well, stay on the road and never talk to strangers.
“I know mom,” answered Little Red Riding Hood and immediately left for Grandma’s house.
To get to Grandma’s house, Little Red Riding Hood had to cross a path through the thick forest. On the way, she met the wolf.
“Hello little girl, where are you going on this wonderful day?” asked the wolf.
Little Red Riding Hood remembered that her mother had warned her not to talk to strangers, but the wolf looked very elegant, he was also very friendly and polite.
“I’m going to Grandma’s house, Mister Wolf,” the girl answered. She is sick and I am going to bring her these cookies to cheer her up a bit.
“What a good girl you are!” exclaimed the wolf. “How far do you have to go?”
—Oh! I have to get to the end of the road, Grandma lives there—Little Red Riding Hood said with a smile.
“I wish you a very happy day, my girl,” replied the wolf.
The wolf went into the forest. He had a huge appetite and was not really to be trusted. So he ran to Grandma’s house before Little Red Riding Hood could catch up with him. His plan was to eat Grandma, Little Red Riding Hood and all the freshly baked cookies.
The wolf knocked on Grandma’s door. Seeing him, the grandmother ran terrified, leaving her shawl behind. The wolf took the shawl from the old lady and then put on his glasses and his night cap. Quickly, she climbed into Granny’s bed, pulling the blanket up to her nose. Soon he heard a knock on the door:
“Grandma, it’s me, Little Red Riding Hood.
With you disguised, trying to sound like granny, the wolf said:
—Come in my girl, I’m in bed.
Little Red Riding Hood thought that her grandmother was very sick because she looked very pale and sounded terrible.
—Grandma, grandma, what big eyes you have!
“They are to see you better,” replied the wolf.
—Grandma, granny, what big ears you have!
“They are to hear you better,” whispered the wolf.
—Grandma, grandma, what big teeth you have!
-They are for eat you better!
With these words, the evil wolf threw off his blanket and jumped out of bed. Scared, Little Red Riding Hood ran to the door. Just then, a woodcutter approached the door, which was ajar. Granny was hiding behind him.
Seeing the woodcutter, the wolf jumped out the window and fled in fright, never to be seen.
Granny and Little Red Riding Hood thanked the woodcutter for saving them from the evil wolf and they all ate cookies with milk. That day Little Red Riding Hood learned an important lesson:
“You should never talk to strangers.”
