Red is off to take cakes and sweets to her ill Granny who lives far, far away in the enchanted woods. On the way she meets a stranger who is very interested in Granny and all may not be quite as it seems... Grandma has big eyes and teeth and she’s hairy. Very hairy!
How will Red make it to Granny’s house? Will all the treats, cakes and sweets make it, too? And who is the stranger she meets along the way?
