MU KPB 011 The Arthur Rackham Fairy Book 0286

Little Red Riding Hood is a prime example of the universality of fairy tales and the rules they encompass. To begin with, Charles Perrault included this story in his own collection more than a century before the Brothers Grimm added it to theirs. The rules represented in the Grimm version of the story therefore cannot be linked to a single place or time.
