Featuring a new foreword by Caldecott Medalist Jason Chin, this beloved fairytale is now available in a handsomely produced 40th anniversary edition.

“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.

Jason Chin shares a heartfelt tribute to his mentor, Trina Schart Hyman,  and her artistic legacy. Newly designed endpapers, foil stamped cover, and debossed case reminiscent of the original cloth cover makes this a treasured gift to share.
