Inspired by the legendary Tales and Stories of the Past written by Charles Perrault in the 17th century, Gabriela Mistral wrote her own “Little Red Riding Hood,” which was first published in 1924, in the poetry volume entitled Ternura. Written in verse, Mistral’s version is faithful to the original, neither sweetening nor altering the ending. 

Editorial Amanuta has rediscovered this poem and published it in the form of an illustrated book that lends a contemporary aesthetic to this classic story. Illustrations by Paloma Valdivia.
