Description

While picking berries with her mother, a little girl wanders too far into the woods. When she realizes she is lost, she begins to panic. A large grey wolf makes a sudden appearance between some distant trees. Using his sense of smell, he determines where she came from and decides to help her. Through a series of questions from the wolf, the little girl realizes she had the knowledge and skill to navigate herself--she just needed to remember that those abilities were there all along.

User reviews

LibraryThing member villemezbrown
This Little Red Riding Hood riff is odd and creepy in tone but compelling, especially if you think of the wolf as metaphorical. ("But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man that he didn't, didn't already have.") The ending gesture left me baffled though until it was explained in the Author's Note.
