red naps after the feastThe first edition of Grimms’ tale includes in the ending Little Red Cap going through the woods a second time. This time she recognizes the danger and doesn’t speak to the wolf. She asks her grandmother’s advice. She carries water until a big, big trough is completely full and the wolf is drowned. These paragraphs change Little Red Riding Hood from a victim into a heroine. This Little Red Riding Hood is different form the others who just get eaten and rescued and admonished not to talk to strangers. In the complete Grimms’ folktale, Little Red Cap goes home “safely and merrily” not because the hunter rescues her, but because she has learned to recognize and deal with danger.

Small town frocks wonders if perhaps there is more to that story as well…
