Lon Po Po

By Ed Young
Published by Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers, 2000
When their mother goes off to make a visit, three girls are left home. Granny Wolf, disguised as the girls’ grandmother, attempts to trick them into letting them into their hiding place. With skill and guile, the girls manage to capture and kill the wolf.
This book for young children is a great comparison with Red Riding Hood, and offers its Chinese origin as well as another way to tell a classic tale. Older students could use Lon Po Po as a model for writing their own versions of a classic story.
