French Folklore


Little Red Riding Hood's grandmother was an old, sickly woman who lived on the other side of a forest.

One day, her granddaughter was on her way to bring her some food and met a wolf on the way. After foolishly telling the wolf where she was going, the wolf got there first and ate the grandmother.

After also eating the granddaughter, the two were saved by the timely arrival of a lumberjack.


  • As with all folk tales, varying versions of the story exist from Red wearing a cap rather than a hood, to the grandmother being locked in a closet instead of eaten, to the lumberjack being a hunter, and to the wolf not dying, simply getting a beating and sent on his way.
