Dore ridinghood

A depiction by Gustave Doré.

"Little Red Riding Hood", also known as "Little Red Cap" or simply "Red Riding Hood", is a French and later European fairy tale about a young girl, who was to deliver food to her sick grandmother, and a Big Bad Wolf. The young girl had the order from her mother to stay strictly on the path, but she encounters a wolf who wants to eat her and the food in her basket. The Brothers Grimm story ends with a hunter who saves the girl and her grandmother and kills the wolf, but the original story ends with the young girl's death, eaten by the wolf. The story has been changed considerably in its history and subject to numerous modern adaptations and readings. The story was first published by Charles Perrault.
