This book has its origin in a workshop at Tokyo´s Itabashi Museum. The participants, whose work is reproduced integrally, were asked to think of their own versions of Perrault’s story. The result is as varied as it is surprising: there are stories of fear, of laugher, of adventure, stories about ghosts, love and gastronomy.

When Media Vaca began its journey in 1998, its publisher was unsure about what type of books he wanted to make, but he was certain about which ones he did not: those which already exist a thousand times: Little Red Riding Hood!

Since life takes many turns, there is now a version of Little Red Riding Hood by Media Vaca. It is not just another book, in fact, there are twenty-one more books: twenty-one different stories inspired by the classic fairytale by Perrault, who wrote the first known work about this famous character.

The project originates in a workshop for illustrators which took place in the Itabashi Museum in Japan during the summer of 2003. The participants, whose works are reproduced in the book in their entirety, were asked not to limit themselves to simply matching their drawings to Perrault’s words, but to feel free making any changes they wished according to their own interests. The result is as varied as it is astonishing: it includes horror, comedic, and adventure stories, as well as stories about ghosts, love, and gastronomy.
