Story Summary

Little Red Riding Hood with a twist ... One day a little girl in a red cloak is walking through the forest to bring her Granny a basket of goodies ... so far, so good. On the way she steps on a sleeping wolf's tale which wakes the wolf and sends the girl screaming into the forest without her basket. Trying to do the right thing, the wolf decides that he should follow her and return the basket. When he arrives at Granny's cabin, Granny also screams and runs leaving the wolf wondering why humans have no manners.
