First time being introduced to the gory versions of the likes of Little Red Riding Hood. Lesson learned, make sure there is a buddy system for when traveling the woods, make sure you are well protected and don’t allow youreself to be swayed from the path by smooth talking strangers, and for goodness sake, listen to your elders!!! Either that or shame on the parent(s) for allowing such a young child to go off on her own ESPECIALLY if you know of the dangers that lurk in the woods. Even still! I can’t imagine the parent would be that idiotic to allow such a young child off on her own.

In all stories, let’s face it, they all involve Red being eaten one way or another. In one story, she survives (thank you Mr. Huntsman!), and in another, she perishes along with poor old granny. In either regard, she learns a lesson in each making her way into womanhood (as it were).
