Little Red

Little Red by Beatriz Martin Vidal
(Logos, 2012)

I recently received this absolutely stunning wordless picture book that tells the tale of Little Red Riding Hood in all of its darkness. Beatriz Martin Vidal is one of the artists that I've been enamored with over the past few years, and this books reminds just why I've been so blown away. The paintings are intense, the fear and mystery is palpable. And the altered ending creates a story where Red triumphs on her own, destroying the wolf simply by the pureness of her being. Breathtaking and beautiful.
