Henry Peach Robinson, Little Riding Red Hood, 1858
1.’Her Mother having only one day made some cakes, said to Little Red Riding Hood, ‘I hear your poor old Grandma has been ailing; so, prithee, go and see if she be any better, and take her these cakes and a pot of butter.”
2. ”Who is there?’ said the Wolf. ‘It is me, your own little grandchild’, the artless little girl replied, ‘I have brought you some nice cakes and a little pot of butter.’ The Wolf, softening his voice as much as he could, said ‘Pull the bobbin, and the latch will go up.”
3. ‘Little Red Riding Hood then went and drew back the curtain, when she was much surprised to see how oddly her Grandmother looked in her nightclothes!’.
4. ‘Little Red Riding Hood hastened home to tell her mother all that had befallen her; nor did she forget that night to thank heaven fervently having delivered her from the jaws of the Wolf’
