A fabulously funny fairytale romp with an utterly fearless, totally beguiling, very determined and very little heroine.
Very Little Red Riding Hood is little. Very little. She's brave and bossy, fearless and determined, loving and funny. And like all toddlers she likes everything just so – woe betide anyone and anything that gets in her way!
Join Very Little Red Riding Hood on a very important expedition to her Grandmama's for a sleepover.
She's got some cakes, she's got red ted, she's got her blanket and she's got her tea set. And NOTHING is going to get in the way of her well-laid plans. Not even a Wolf!
Will they all live happily ever after?

“This is Little Red Riding Hood for the modern age...a great story that will find fans of old and young alike.”
The School Librarian
“This quirky take on the original is fabulous – and sure to become a bedtime delight.”
“Delightful…switches on a nightlight to bleach out the darkness of the Grimms’ version. Heapy allows the little girl to speak like a real child and Heap gives her the sort of coat with animal ears that wouldn’t look out of place in the local park…A perfect present for a Gramma to give her VLRRH.”
“A delightful twist in the tale… warm illustrations… a delight to share.”
