Little Red

Little Red is the story of a boy, a grandmother, a big bad wolf, and a keg of delicious fizzy ginger beer. Young Thomas is known as Little Red. He lives with his parents in a cosy inn, famous for its sweet and fizzy ginger beer. Every week, Little Red visits his grandmother with food and a keg of the ginger beer. But on this visit, grandma doesn’t quite look herself. Can Little Red save Grandma, and himself, from the big bad wolf – perhaps with the help of a certain fizzy beverage? This highly imaginative spin on the classic tale is set in the late eighteenth century – a time of big wigs, satin gowns, beauty spots, powdered faces and wicked highwaymen!

But then one day, a handsome stranger climbs up her hair and a new adventure begins. Set in the glamorous seventies, this lively retelling is bursting with colourful period detail.
