04 Mar / Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story from China by Ed Young [in What Do I Read Next? Multicultural Literature]
A mother makes a birthday visit to her own mother, leaving her three daughters at home with the warning to keep the doors locked. An old wolf, disguised as the birthday grandmother appears late at night, intending to eat the children, but they are finally able to outwit her. Ed Young‘s stunning visuals deservedly won him the 1989 Caldecott Medal.
