Wolf: Bye, bye, Little Red Riding Hood!
Narrator: Little Red Riding Hood kept looking for flowers disobeying her mother who told her not to stop in the forest. Meanwhile, the wolf knocked at the door. He swallowed Little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother. Then he put on a nightgown, jumped into the bed and waited for the little girl. A few minutes later Little Red Riding Hood arrived at her grandmother’s house. She knocked at the door.

Wolf: Yes! All the better to eat you!
Narrator: And the Wolf gobbled up Little Red Riding Hood. Then the wolf fell asleep. Meanwhile a woodcutter was passing by and he saw the door opened. He entered, looked for the old lady, and then he saw the wolf.
Woodcutter: Oh! The wolf is sleeping! And he’s so fat! I hope I am on time!
Narrator: Then he took the wolf by the neck and made him spit out the poor Grandmother and Little Red Riding Hood who were still in one piece.
