Little Red Cap
Little Red Cap by The Brothers Grimm. Illustrated by Lisbeth Zwerger.
This picture book was originally published in 1987. It has recently been republished. The text is straight from The Brothers Grimm. You can read the full text here. This is how it begins, "ONCE upon a time there was a dear little girl who was loved by every one who looked at her, but most of all by her grandmother, and there was nothing that she would not have given to the child. Once she gave her a little cap of red velvet, which suited her so well that she would never wear anything else; so she was always called "Little Red-Cap." The illustrations are by Lisbeth Zwerger. She's thought to be very talented as an illustrator. And her style is definitely distinctive.
