A good comparison from the traditional European Little Red Riding Hood. I thought it was going to be rather dark, but it wasn't so much. The pictures are a little vague, more dark than the cartoons we are used to -not for children under 5.
from the grimm brothers' "little red riding hood," ed young presents china's own spin on the classic tale in which three sisters strive to outwit the big bad wolf. both narrative & art work hand-in-hand to create a richly intense atmosphere---& while the artwork alone makes checking out lon po po worth it, I second that the illustrations may frighten young(er) readers.
Wonderful art work. Interesting to see another culture take on "Red Riding Hood" type of tale. Tale is geared for age 4 and older
In a refreshing departure from the Red Riding Hood template, three sisters rise to the challenge when they find themselves sharing a bed with a hungry wolf. The spooky, evocative illustrations may be too intense for the youngest readers.
