The story begins with ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ about to set off to her Grandma’s house with a basket of treats. Her mother warns her about the danger of the woods and of talking to strangers and asks that she go straight to Grandma’s house as quickly as possible. Little Red Riding Hood promises her mother she will and sets off.
Not long into her journey she is distracted by the flowers in the forest. She picks a bunch and then chases some butterflies.
She is approached by a wolf who asks her where she is going. She explains that she is going to see Grandma and mentions where the house is.
The wolf moves on and Little Red Riding Hood, realising how much time she has wasted, hurriedly continues on her journey.
Unbeknownst to her, the Wolf has taken a shortcut. He soon arrives at Grandma’s house and taps on her door. As soon as she opens it, the Wolf eats her. He dresses as her and gets in bed.
When Little Red Riding Hood arrives, she notices ‘Grandma’ looks different.
"Grandma! What big ears you have,"
"All the better to hear you with, my dear," replies the Wolf.
"Grandma! What big eyes you have," she says
"All the better to see you with, my dear," replies the Wolf.
"But Grandma! What big teeth you have," says Little Red Riding Hood.
"All the better to eat you with, my dear!"
At this point, the Wolf tries to eat Little Red Riding Hood, but her screams are heard by the Woodcutter who is working nearby.He rushes in and kills the Wolf. Little Red Riding Hood explains that the Wolf has eaten Grandma, so the Woodcutter cuts open the Wolf with his axe and frees Grandma.
