LITTLE RED. RIDING-HOOD.
ONCE upon a time there was a dear little girl,
whose mother made her a scarlet cloak, with.a hood
to tie over her pretty head; so people called her (as
a pet name) "Little Red Riding-Hood." One day
her mother tied on her cloak and hood, and said,
I:' "I wish you to go to-day, my darling, to see your
grandmamma, and take her a present ofsome butter, t
fresh eggs, a po- ff honey, and a little cake, with
my ove," -,. ,
u*r 'e Re..Riding-Hood loved her grandmother,

man Hugh's axe at work close by, he was afraid to
touch her, for fear she should cry out and he should
get killed. So he only asked her where she was going.
Little Red Riding-Hood innocently told him (for
she did not know he was a wicked Wolf) that she
was going to visit her grandmother, who lived in a
cottage on the other side of the wood. Then the
Wolf made haste, and ran through the wood, and
came to the cottage of which the child had told him.
He tapped at the dor.
"Who's there ?" asked the old woman, who lay
sick in bed.
"It is Little Red Riding-Hood, Grandnmamma,"
answered the Wolf in a squeaky tone, to imitate the
voice of her grandchild.
"Pull the string, and the latch will come up,"
said the old lady, for I am ill, and cannot open the

lingered gathering flowers as she came along, and so
was much later than the Wolf, knocked at the door.
Who 's there ?" asked the Wolf, mimicking her
"It is Little Red Ridiug-Hood, dear Grand-
mamma," said the child. .
"Pull the string, and the latch'will come up,"
said the Wolf.
So Red Riding-Hood came in, and the Wolf told
her toqut down her basket, and come and sit on the
bed. When Little Red Riding-Hood drew back the
curtain and saw the Wolf, she began to be rather
frightened, and said,
"Dear Grandmamma, what great eyes you have
"All the better to see with, my dear," said the
Wolf, who liked a grim joke.
"And what a large nose you have, Grandmamma !"
cried the child.
All the better to smell with, my dear."
