Red Riding Hood from different perspectives...

Kiki Smith

Jesse Willcox Smith

Don't know who this artist is but this looks like a black and white study for the following color version.

John Everett Millais

Sorry that not all of these visuals are not identified by artist.  I love how this old folk tale has been interpreted time and time again.  I never tire of the little girl getting wise about the wolf (that's the way I see it, but have always been sad about the versions that allow the grandmother to be eaten beforehand). I often revisit old saying and stories used to teach us things.
