Some unanswered questions

If grandma had a cold why was her window open (wolf flew out of)?
Why didnt wilf first eat up grandma then wait for Goldy?
Didnt the wolf learn his lesson yet from his experience with the 3 little pigs?!
For the most part, the book follows the original story pretty closely. However, the author adds in advice here and there to children, such as, " Never Talk to Strangers," and other things you would like your child to remember. The illustrations are wonderful, and keeps kids interested in the story and the lessons behind it.
The ending is a lot better in my opinion, as the "Big Bad Wolf" doesn't chomp down and eat anyone. My daughter was only three when I purchased this book, and I was pleasantly surprised to see an alternate ending.
The story flows well, and there aren't any boring parts that will leave kids bored. The version I read years ago was a bit more elaborate, but I clearly remember wanting to skip pages and get to the good part. Everything is the "good part" with this book, according to my daughter, who was glued to the book through its entirety.
Again, I just can't say enough about the illustrations. Illustrations are an important factor to young children, and each page was filled with beautifully illustrated characters that went along perfectly with the story.
There are a ton of "Little Red Riding Hood" books available out there, but this one is one of my favorites. If you are looking for more age-appropriate material for small children, this would be the perfect pick.
Another thing I love about this book is it's one out of a collection of books. You can get Rip Van Winkle, Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks, Big Red Hen, etc etc and all of the books match allowing you to have quite a large library of these books alone. Not only that, but they're all sold at such an affordable price.
So far, this is the only book I've gotten out of this collection, but I am definitely going to be purchasing as many as I can find. The illustrations are great, the story is great and perfect for your little ones. It allows children to love these stories as such a tiny age so they can appreciate and enjoy the real versions once they're older.
