Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Friday, September 21, 2018
I got this softcover from this Little Free Library in York, Maine while dropping off some books of my own. It's a variation of the "Little Red Riding Hood" story, set in China, with the three clever children finding their own method of fending off the wolf. (Though the page showing the three girls afterwards depicts them with rather creepy, icy stares - intentional? {wry grin})

The author placed a note up front thanking wolves for "lending their good name as a tangible symbol for our darkness", which I appreciated as I'm very fond of wolves and always thought they got a raw deal in the fairy tales.

I left this book in the Little Free Library; hope someone enjoys it!
