Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion

Full of energy, you’ll be reminded with this book of the fairy tale classic, Little Red Riding Hood, though Alex Smith’s twist places Little Red in an African safari landscape, this time keen to avoid being eaten by a lion. Colourful and delightfully fun, you’ll find there’s a whole array of exotic creatures to be discovered before you even get to him. At the crux of the story however, Little Red – more feisty perhaps than ever – will help your little ones think about the value of manners, as she manages finally to teach that naughtily hungry lion a lesson.
