    the origins of the little red riding hood story are unclear, but they can be traced to well before the 17th century perrault interpretation most familiar to western readers earlier versions of the tale have turned up in other parts of europe, in africa, asia, and the middle east in some of the stories, the children are eaten, in some they escape, in some they are eaten and still escape, sometimes the antagonist is a tiger, a fox, a hyenais book is presenting itself as A Red Riding Hood Story Fro [...]

    This is the Chinese version of Red Riding Hood and it is quite wonderful We get three children in danger of the wolf and they handle it by using their brains so it s a much intelligent spin than we often get in European versions of fairy tales Plus, this book has some very nice artwork completing the overall look of the story Simple but beautiful.

    Lon Po Po is a Caldecott Medal winning book by Ed Young that is a remake of Brothers Grimm s classic Red Riding Hood, only this time, there are three sisters who outwit a cunning wolf in this tale Lon Po Po may be a bit too scary for smaller children because of the images, but older children will easily love this story that is full of mystery and suspense.Ed Young has done a great job at writing and illustrating this old Chinese folktale about how three sisters outwit a cunning and frightening w [...]

    Lon Po Po is another book I wanted to check out because it made the Top 20 Most Beautiful Children s Books list I love the creepy wolf on the cover I think Ed Young loves wolves too because he puts a dedication at the beginning of the book.To all the wolves of the worldfor lending their good nameas a tangible symbol for our darknessThis is an old Chinese folk tale called Granny Wolf The illustration is excellent, and I loved the old world feeling the book had Lon Po Po may be bit too creepy for [...]

    I very much enjoyed both narrative and accompanying illustrations of this Red Riding Hood type of tale from China, how the three sisters are able to outsmart and later kill the big bad wolf by subterfuge, and by specifically focusing and playing on the latter s greediness and gluttony Author illustrator Ed Young s water colours and pastels evocatively and expressively provide a perfect physical and atmospheric mirror of and to the text, with just enough creepiness to mildly frighten although ver [...]

    I particularly like the dedication page, in which Young creates an image that is both man and wolf, and is written To all the wolves of the worldfor lending their good nameas a tangible symbolfor our darkness.

    An interesting cautionary tale in the style of Little Red from China Unlike the western version, this one has a different ending where the children outwit the wolf The illustrations accompanying the text are wonderful, and match the text well.

    The story is a traditional Chinese tale, somewhat akin to Red Riding Hood The children remain at home, however, while their mother leaves to go visit their grandmother The wolf tricks them into opening the door, but they children outsmart the wolf It s a timeless lesson about heeding warnings, and obeying the instructions of your elders But I really like the way these three young girls get the best of the bad wolf They are brave and clever.Young s beautiful illustrations support and enhance the [...]

    I gave this book a 4 star rating Lon Po Po won a Caldecott medal in 1990 The illustrations combine ancient Chinese panel art with contemporary watercolors and pastels The reading level of this book is appropriate for children aged 4 8, but can be enjoyed as a read aloud with younger children and as a trip down memory lane for older readers However, reader be warned, it is slightly morbid Lon Po Po is a red riding hood story from China It fits into both the multicultural and traditional categorie [...]

    This Chinese version of Little Red Riding Hood provides a direct contrast to the original Grimm version the teacher in me could envision the Venn Diagrams straight away While the wolf antagonist, theme of caution, and children s observation skills remains the same, most other points differ In this version, the mother leaves to visit the grandmother, the wolf comes to the children s home, the children outsmart the wolf and save themselves The author and illustrator, Ed Young, born and raised in C [...]

    The pictures are a little too vague and skimpy for a good readaloud, but this Chinese story is great and can be used to compare and contrast with the traditional Little Red Riding Hood.

    This is an extraordinary take on the traditional tale of Little Red Riding Hood This version of the story takes on the perspective from the wolf s point of view almost Much like how the original version has Red learning how not to listen to strangers and watch your surroundings, the wolf in this book learns how not to become too trusting of others and fall into the trap of temptation Author Ed Young uses the literary tool of suspense to captivate his reader s attention at the beginning of the st [...]

    Lon Po Po A Red Riding Hood Story from China is a spin on the traditional version of Little Red Riding Hood First, it is set in China and secondly, the wolf impersonating the grandmother comes to the children, not the other way around Once the children figure out grandma did not come visit them, they devise a plan to keep themselves safe Are they able to stay away from the wolf I thought the story was decent, but Ed Young truly excelled with the illustrations The pictures were definitely done in [...]

    A classic Chinese retelling of Red Riding Hood a very different albeit similar take, with three young sisters at the forefront.The misty watercolour illustrations really add to the darkness of the book The wolf himself Lon Po Po, the house intruder disguised as the girls grandmother is terrifying, yet at the end you can t help feeling sorry for him An oddly tragic villain, is Granny Wolf I love the dynamic between the three girls Shang, Tao, and Paotze and how they prove to be as cunning as the [...]
