Top ten re-imagined fairytales

Elli Woollard is the author of The Giant of Jum, illustrated by Benji Davies. One of her ten top re-imagined fairytales, as shared at the Guardian:
Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion by Alex T Smith

Little Red is back, but this time she’s in the African jungle, and it’s not wolves she has to contend with but a big, hungry lion. A brilliant reworking of the classic tale, Alex T Smith’s story matches vibrant illustrations and a loveable cast of characters (Little Red’s pet goat is a particular favourite) to create a truly hilarious story.
