For how would we know not to speak to strangers if Little Red Riding Hood had not been sacrificed for her readers? Most variations of Little Red Riding Hood trot along the same old winding path as its namesake.

They mirror the text in that they steer the child reader while still communicating with an older audience, winking at adults while dutifully wagging a finger at children.

Secondly, they make the threat of the big bad wolf obvious to the reader even if it is not visible to Little Red.
If only leafing through pictures, we can still spot what the wolf is up to. Nevertheless, this illustration retains much of the darkness lurking in this tale. The wolf has always hidden under the covers of our bed disguised as a beloved relative, as someone we trust, leaving us vulnerable and betrayed. Yet the recent renditions have further increased the amount of violence and depicted children partaking in it.
