Little Red Riding Hood: Symbolism — Annotated Bibliography
Browne, Anthony. “Into the Forest.” Candlewick Press, 2004.
This picture book for older children centers upon a sad young boy who wakes up one morning to find that his Dad is gone. His mom asks him to take a cake to Grandmas and he is disobedient and becomes lost in the wood. On his journey, the boy encounters contemporary kids in basic fairy-tale roles-- among them, Red Riding Hood. I will use the author’s focus about the boy who gets lost in the words just as Little Red Riding Hood got lost in the woods.
Lyden, Jacki, and Catherine Orenstein, “An interview with Catherine Orenstein, and Jacki Lyden.”
This is an interview with Catherine Orenstein and the story behind the novel. Orenstein talks about the reasoning behind the reason she wrote Little Red Riding Hood Uncloaked: Sex, Morality, and the Evolution of a Fairy Tale. I will use the background information she shares about her thoughts in the forming stages of the novel.
Roberts, Lynn. Little Red: A Fizzingly Good Yarn; illus. by David Roberts. Abrams, 2005.
The retelling of this story is set in the late 18th century, and Little Red is a young boy named Thomas asked to deliver ginger ale and treats to his grandmother who is old in age. The combination of creepy illustrations, comic elements will help the reader understand the story line. I plan to use this book to illustrate the differences between this story and the original red riding hood.
