Little Red Riding Hood Uncloaked: Ten Moral Tales from the Forest
by Catherine Orenstein
304pp, Basic Books, £16

Philip Sidney wrote enticingly of the excitement of "a tale which holdeth children from play and old men from the chimney corner". Unless we are unlucky we get hooked on stories before we are old enough to ask ourselves why, or to distinguish one kind of story from another. But we tend to remember the old tales of magic (not necessarily fairies) in a special way. They are part of the furniture of our mental attics and cellars.

Remembering them is like remembering our first taste of sugar crystals, or avocado, or vanilla. A quiddity of pleasure. We recognise that these tales are endless shape-shifters, within definite bounds. We like to believe that "our" version is definitive, and know it is not. We - or at least I - don't like people messing around with them.

Summary : Rouge has the greatest sexual encounter with Chasseur, the village huntsman, but doesn't know a greedy wolf watched the entire thing. Now, while journeying to the neighboring village to help her ill grandmother she encounters the dangerous wolf, and the fight to survive begins.

Author's Note : This is retelling of Little Red Riding Hood expect she's 18 and she's super hot and horny. I thought it would be interesting to give the huntsman a bigger role and the wolf a personality. I wanted this to be a bit more that porn without plot, I also wanted to add some minor new elements to the classic fairy tale.

Once upon a time there lived in a certain village a little country girl, the prettiest girl who any man had ever seen. She had long brown hair that touched her waist; she was modestly tall with a narrow waist and a large bust. Every man who saw her fell instantly in lust with her. Every man courted her, but only the huntsman made her heart beat faster.
