This challenging wordless retelling of Little Red Riding Hood is another example of a postmodern version of a fairy tale. There is also a French version in the corpus: Le Petit Chaperon Rouge [Little Red Riding Hood]. These retellings provide a bold and innovative way to consider cultural literacy, as readers most usually draw upon their own cultural knowledge of fairy tales in order to assemble meaning from an, at times, deliberately oblique visual narrative. Pedro Perles’ haunting illustrations carry a touch of the surreal, providing a complex and sometimes ambiguous depiction of the signifiers of the famous tale. Readers will be challenged to consider how they might mediate familiar narratives in a wordless texts, and how the removal of words makes the familiar unfamiliar.
