Everybody knows who is Little Red Riding Hood, but perhaps anybody doesn't know the story of Cappuccetto Verde, Cappuccetto Giallo and Cappuccetto Bianco, sent by their mother to take their grandmother a basket full of green, yellow, white eatings. The black wolf is waiting for them in the wood, in the traffic jam, in the snow... will it manage to capture them?
With those tales, published for the first time in 1972, in the historical Einaudi series "Tantibambini", the main character is a colour, protagonist in drawings, text, characters.
Bruno Munari played with traditional fairy tales and widened its horizons, creating new characters and stories. The Munari's Little Riding Hoods come back now as singular books, according to the original project.
This book is also available in English.
