    I very much enjoyed both narrative and accompanying illustrations of this Red Riding Hood type of tale from China, how the three sisters are able to outsmart and later kill the big bad wolf by subterfuge, and by specifically focusing and playing on the latter s greediness and gluttony Author illustrator Ed Young s water colours and pastels evocatively and expressively provide a perfect physical and atmospheric mirror of and to the text, with just enough creepiness to mildly frighten although I very much enjoyed both narrative and accompanying illustrations of this Red Riding Hood type of tale from China, how the three sisters are able to outsmart and later kill the big bad wolf by subterfuge, and by specifically focusing and playing on the latter s greediness and gluttony Author illustrator Ed Young s water colours and pastels evocatively and expressively provide a perfect physic...

    I particularly like the dedication page, in which Young creates an image that is both man and wolf, and is written To all the wolves of the worldfor lending their good nameas a tangible symbolfor our darkness.

    An interesting cautionary tale in the style of Little Red from China Unlike the western version, this one has a different ending where the children outwit the wolf The illustrations accompanying the text are wonderful, and match the text well.
