“Everything in this book is vital and alive. Open it up and drink it in.” —Jason Chin, illustrator of Caldecott-winning book Watercress

When it was first published 40 years ago, Trina Schart Hyman’s retelling of Little Red Riding Hood created a sensation for its cozily detailed, romantic, and mysterious illustrations of one of childhood’s most popular stories. Since then, this Caldecott Honor book has become one of the best-loved editions of the tale, delighting generations with its wonderfully alive paintings.

Born in Philadelphia, she lived most of her life in New Hampshire.
