The Big Bad Wolf

Well, not exactly big, and not exactly bad looking either.

This wolf cub has been named Wolfgang, and he will soon have some brothers and sisters.
I couldn't depart from the cute design and make him more growly and fangy. It just didn't happen.
So I guess he won't be eating up my Miss Red Riding Hood brooch any time soon.
I found my old book of Little Red Riding Hood and noted that it had the unforgiving finale.

The summary at the beginning of this copy states " Not only is grandmother eaten up in this Perrault version, but so is little Red Riding Hood".I guess it's to give the reader due warning if they have a sensitive child.
It's gruesome, but way more believable I reckon!


  1. Adorable, perfect design to go with your Posie Red Riding Hood purse!! Love her, she's sooo sweet & yes, a sweet looking wolf indeedy. Love Posie

  2. I'm pretty sure thats the version I read when I was a kid too...

  3. Wow that's pretty amazing!! Something in the air!!
    And you know its even weirder cos I just added to my wish list one of your fox brooches at GeorgieLove!!
    Love the illustrations from the book too!!

  4. you are right
    i think wolfgang would not eat a fly
