The wolf pulled the bobbin, and the door opened, and then he immediately fell upon the good woman and ate her up in a moment, for it been more than three days since he had eaten.
Little Red Riding Hood took off her clothes and got into bed. The Moral of the Story: Children, especially attractive, well bred young ladies, should never talk to strangers, for if they should do so, they may well provide dinner for a wolf. There are also those who are charming, quiet, polite, unassuming, complacent, and sweet, who pursue young women at home and in the streets.
And unfortunately, it is these gentle wolves who are the most dangerous ones of all. About the Story: The story of Little red riding hood is a European folk tale originating from the 10th century. About the Author: He laid the foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, with his works derived from pre-existing folk tales.
We baked yesterday; old granny must have a good meal for once, and strengthen herself therewith.
There stands her house; further beneath are the nut trees, which you will see there," said Red Hood. The wolf thought within himself, "This nice young damsel is a rich morsel.
She will taste better than the old woman; but you must trick her cleverly, that you may catch both.

Just look! There are such pretty flowers here! Why don't you look round at them all? Methinks you don't even hear how delightfully the birds are singing! You are as dull as if you were going to school, and yet it is so cheerful in the forest!
It is still so early, that I shall come to her in plenty of time," and therewith she skipped into the forest and looked for flowers.
And when she had plucked one, she fancied that another further off was nicer, and ran there, and went always deeper and deeper into the forest. But the wolf went by the straight road to old granny's, and knocked at the door. Then he took her clothes, dressed himself in them, put her cap on his head, lay down in her bed and drew the curtains.
Meanwhile little Red Hood was running after flowers, and when she had so many that she could not carry any more, she bethought her of her granny, and started on the way to her. It seemed strange to her that the door was wide open, and when she entered the room everything seemed to her so peculiar, that she thought, "Ah!
My God! How strange I feel today, and yet at other times I am so glad to be with granny! Thereupon she went to the bed and undrew the curtains.
There lay granny, with her cap drawn down to her eyes, and looking so queer! Why have you such long ears? Why have you such large eyes? Why have you such large hands?
Why have you such a terribly large mouth? When the wolf had satisfied his appetite, he lay down again in the bed, and began to snore tremendously.
Little Red Riding Hood – Classic Children’s Story
A huntsman came past, and bethought himself, "How can an old woman snore like that? I'll just have a look to see what it is. When he had made several cuts, he saw a red hood gleam, and after one or two more cuts out skipped Red Hood, and cried, "Oh, how frightened I have been; it was so dark in the wolf's maw! But Red Hood made haste and fetched large stones, with which they filled the wolf's maw, and when he woke he wanted to jump up and run away, but the stones were so heavy that he fell on the ground and beat himself to death.
Now, they were all three merry.
The huntsman took off the wolf's skin; granny ate the cake and drank the wine which little Red Hood had brought, and became strong and well again; and little Red Hood thought to herself, "As long as I live, I won't go out of the road into the forest, when mother has forbidden me.
Note by Wratslaw: "Little Red Hood," like many folklore tales, is a singular mixture of myth and morality. In Cox's Comparative Mythology, vol.
It appears to me that this explanation may suit the color of her cap or hood, but is at variance with the other incidents of the story. I am inclined to look upon the tale as a lunar legend, although the moon is only actually red during one portion of the year, at the harvest moon in the autumn.
Red Hood is represented as wandering, like Io, who is undoubtedly the moon, through trees, the clouds, and flowers, the stars, before she reaches the place where she is intercepted by the wolf. An eclipse to untutored minds would naturally suggest the notion that some evil beast was endeavoring to devour the moon, who is afterwards rescued by the sun, the archer of the heavens, whose bow and arrow are by a common anachronism represented in the story by a gun.
Though the moon is masculine in Slavonic, as in German, yet she is a lady, "my lady Luna," in the Croatian legend no. In the Norse mythology, when Loki is let loose at the end of the world, he is to "hurry in the form of a wolf to swallow the moon " Cox ii.
The present masculine Slavonic word for moon, which is also that for month, mesic, or mesec, is a secondary formation, the original word having perished. In Greek and Latin the moon is always feminine. One day they were both in the field when the old woman said, "I am going home now. You come along later and bring me some soup. Where are you going? Are you going across the stones or the thorns? Maybe the old woman was still alive inside his belly!
Little Red Riding Hood
So the man took a pair of scissors and cut open his belly. He saw a red hood popping out and then Little Red Riding Hood jumped out. The huntsman cut a bit more and the grandmother came out, too. Little Red Riding Hood gathered some stones and they filled the wolf's belly with them.
When he woke up, he was scared and tried to run away but the stones were so heavy that he fell down dead. The three ate some cake, happy in the knowledge that the wolf was not going to be a danger anymore.
Little Red Riding Hood decided never to leave the path again and to listen more carefully to what her mother told her.If you liked this story, please share it with others: Brothers Grimm Little Red Riding Hood Once upon a time there was a dear little girl who was loved by everyone who looked at her, but most of all by her grandmother, and there was nothing that she would not have given to the child.

You won't need them anymore. Then he put her clothes on and slipped into the bed. Well, tomorrow we will make her a muff of your skin, and you yourself shall be crunched, for we will give your carcass to the dogs.
