I was reminded of the gorgeous 1990 Caldecott winner centered around Little Red Riding Hood, the Chinese retelling of LON PO PO.
The artwork is gorgeous, and the story is spine-chillingly good, keeping young readers at the edge of their chairs as they wait to hear what happens to three young sisters after a wolf impersonating Po Po (their grandmother), stops by for a "friendly visit."
There are similarities to the version of Little Red we all know and love, but also some unique changes, as well.
I was excited to find the following video on YouTube, where an Education Major reads LON PO PO out loud in its entirety. Gather your children around the computer, or sit back and watch it yourself. LON PO PO is unique and can't be missed!
