TRR: Episode 36 “Little Red Riding Hood”



The story of Little Red Riding Hood has been retold many, many times since first being introduced widely by The Brothers Grimm. The tale has many different versions, some tame and others a scary warning against misbehaving. This version is told in rhyme, published anonymously in London in 1857, most likely by poet Richard Trott Fisher.
