To Kill a Big Bad Wolf

So I took part in this Fairy Tale Writing Competition and as part of the competition, I had to write a short story of a retelling of the famous tale of Little Red Riding Hood.

So in my story, I tried to explore why the parents would actually send Little Red Riding Hood out into the woods to her grandmother. Also, I tried to tie up some of the loose ends of the story and create a much more darker story than the original.

After I wrote the story, I had to come up with a title and eventually settled on ‘To kill a Big Bad Wolf’ as a nod to “To Kill a Mockingbird”.
