Little Red Riding Hood by: Jerry Pinkney - Traditional Literature
I have already read a book by Jerry Pinkney, but I think his artwork is amazing and that benefits the story so much. With pencil and watercolor, Pinkney has filled each page with a scene that is expressive, strong, colorful, realistic, and imaginative all at the same time. It is amazing how soft he creates the features of Little Red Riding Hood, her mother, and grandmother. The way he designed the wolf is great; the wolf seems to smile like he is up to no good. As for the story, it is a traditional retelling of the original story, where the woodcutter comes and saves the day.
