Caitlin McGowan February 9, 2011 Professor Kegler EN102 – Section 81 Little Red Riding Hood The original fairy tales of Little Red Riding Hood by Charles Perrault and Brothers Grimm’s begin with a young innocent girl. Her mother sends the precious girl to her grandmother’s house, and on her way she runs into a wolf in the woods.

In the end of the story, the wolf ate Little Red Riding Hood. The important moral of this fairy tale is to warn little girls to be cautious and be aware of their surroundings.
