Little Red Riding Hood, 1972, 606d


Little Red Riding Hood, 1972.  This book, illustrated by Eric Winter, was the 24th book in the original series of 27 Well-Loved Tales books.  The text, as always in the books of this series, was written by Vera Southgate.

Rather confusingly, there were two versions of this story that many people remember from before the mid-1970s.  One of them, a much earlier version, was illustrated by Harry Wingfield and put the story of Goldilocks in the same book as Little Red Riding Hood.  But the illustrations are similar enough that they can confuse people who half-remember a picture and can’t work out why it isn’t triggering more of an emotional bell.  If that’s you, then take a look at the version from series 413 written by Gilda Lund, and see if that one seems more familiar.
