Modern Day Fairy Tales: Little Red Riding Hood

Once upon a time, fairy tales were the stories we told our children to teach them about the world. Nowadays, it’s a sad reality that there aren’t as many ogres, elves, or fairies roaming around as there used to be. Instead, we face a whole new set of problems, problems which we should prepare our children to face if we want them to be effective in the modern world. With that in mind, we’ve updated a few classic stories to reflect the landscape of 21st century America. So, trade in your sword for a shiny new selfie-stick, and enjoy these Modern Day Fairy Tales.

  • Nice! It’s like it’s written by someone who has zero understanding of how wolves in the real, non-fantasy world work! Or any understanding of how allegory and metaphor are used in traditional folklore 🙂 so dramatic!
