Flip open the patch, and you'll see Granny and Red together.
Once upon a time, there was a sweet little girl. Everyone liked her, most of all her grandmother. Once she gave her a little cap made of red velvet. Because it suited her so well, and she wanted to wear it all the time, she came to be known as Little Red.
One day her mother said to her, "Little Red, here is a piece of cake and a bottle of wine. Take them to your grandmother. She is sick and weak, and they will do her well. Behave yourself on the way, and do not leave the path, or you might fall down and break the glass."
Her grandmother lived out in the woods, a half hour from the village. When Little Red entered the woods a wolf came up to her. She didn't know what a wicked animal he was and was not afraid of him.
"Good day to you, Little Red."
"Thank you, wolf."
"Where are you going so early?"
"And what are you carrying under your apron?"
"Grandmother is sick and weak, and I am taking her some cake and wine."
"Where does your grandmother live?"
"Her house is a quarter hour from here, under the three large oak trees. You must know the place," said Little Red.
The wolf thought to himself, "Now there is a tasty bite for me. Just how am I going to catch her?" Then he said, " Little Red, have you seen the beautiful flowers that are blossoming in the woods? Why don't you go and take a look?"
Little Red opened her eyes and saw the sunlight breaking through the trees and how the ground was covered with beautiful flowers. She thought, "If I take a bouquet to grandmother, she will be very pleased." She ran off into the woods looking for flowers. Each time she picked one she thought that she could see an even more beautiful one a little way off, and she ran after it, going further and further into the woods. In the meanwhile, the wolf ran straight to the grandmother's house and knocked on the door.
"Little Red. I'm bringing you some cake and wine. Open the door for me."
"Press the latch," called out the grandmother. "I'm too weak to get up."
The wolf pressed the latch, and the door opened. He stepped inside, went straight to the grandmother's bed, and ate her up. Then he took her clothes and put them on. He got into her bed and pulled the curtains shut.
Little Red didn't continue on her way to grandmother's until she had gathered all the flowers she could carry. When she arrived, she found, to her surprise, that the door was open. She walked into the parlor, and everything looked so strange that she thought, "Oh my, why am I so afraid? I usually like it at grandmother's." Then she went to the bedroom and pulled back the curtains. Grandmother was lying there with her cap pulled down over her face and looking very weird.
"Oh, grandmother, what big ears you have!"
"All the better to hear you with."
"Oh, what big eyes you have!"
"All the better to see you with."
"Oh, grandmother, what big hands you have!"
"All the better to grab you with!"
"Oh, grandmother, what a horribly big mouth you have!"
"All the better to eat you with!" And with that, he jumped out of bed, jumped on Little Red, and ate her up. As soon as the wolf had finished this tasty bite, he climbed back into bed, fell asleep, and began to snore very loudly.
At the same time, a huntsman was passing by. He thought it strange that the old woman was snoring so loudly, so he decided to take a look. He stepped inside and saw the wolf that he had been chasing laying in bed. "He has eaten the grandmother, but perhaps she still can be saved. I won't shoot him," thought the huntsman. So he took a pair of scissors and cut open his belly.
He had cut only a few strokes when he saw Little Red. She jumped out and cried, "Oh, I was so frightened! It was so dark inside the wolf's belly!"
Then the grandmother came out as well. Little Red fetched some large heavy stones. They filled the wolf's body with them, and when he woke up and tried to run away, the stones were so heavy that he fell down.
The three of them were happy. The huntsman took the wolf's pelt. The grandmother ate the cake and drank the wine, and Little Red thought to herself, "As long as I live, I will never leave the path and run off into the woods by myself".
