Little Red Riding Hood
Once upon a time there was a little girl named Red Riding Hood. She lived in a cottage in the woods with her mom and dad.
One day, because grandmother was sick, her mother told Red to walk through the woods to Grandmother's house with a basket of dumplings and crumpets.
She went through the woods and it was kind of spooky, but she wasn't scared.
Soon she met up with a wolf and he asked her, "Can I have one of those dumplings or crumpets?"
Red Riding Hood said, "No!" and kept on walking.
At Grandmother's house, she saw that Grandma was lying in bed. Red Riding Hood didn't know that the wolf had come ahead and had hidden Grandma under the bed.
Red Riding Hood said, "Grandma, I brought you something from Momma."
In a rough voice, the wolf said, "Hello, my Sweet Pie."
Red Riding Hood said, " Grandma, what a big nose you have!"
"Better to smell you with, my dear."
"And Grandma, what big ears you have!"
"Better to hear you with, my dear."
"And Grandma, what big teeth you have!"
The wolf jumped up, growling, "Better to eat you with, my dear!"
Next, the wolf gobbled up Grandma, and was going to gobble Red Riding Hood too, but just then the woodcutter came because he heard screaming.
The woodcutter scared the wolf and the wolf sneezed, blowing Grandma out.
Red Riding Hood said to the wolf, "If you promise to never eat Grandma again, I will let you go."
"Fine!' said the wolf in a huff. He ran off to the woods.
Grandma and Red Riding Hood were very happy. Grandma said, "Thank you, my Sweet Red."
They both said, "Thank you, kindly," to the woodcutter, and off he went to cut trees.
Red Riding Hood and Grandma enjoyed their feast!
