Little Red Riding Hood – Illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman

[Red’s mother packed a basked and sent Red through the woods with it to her grandmother’s house.]

Picture Book Writers Often Allow Their Illustrations to Create the Setting:

Hyman’s Written Creation of the Setting of Grandmother’s House

“‘Oh, it’s a good fifteen minutes farther into the wood. Her house is the one by those three big oak trees, right next to the blackberry hedge, and there’s a stream running by her garden.’

Through the Words of the Wold, Hyman Creates the Setting of the Woods

“‘Just look at those beautiful wildflowers, Red Riding Hood!…why don’t you relax and look at the world, and see how lovely it is? Why, I don’t believe you even hear the birds sing, or enjoy the sunshine!… Everything else is so gay and happy out here in the forest,’
