In Little Red Cap, or Little Red Riding Hood, a little girl walks through the woods to deliver wine and cake to her sickly grandmother. Having been warned by her mother not to stray from the path, she is tricked by a large wolf into picking flowers in a nearby field. During this time, the wolf, masquerading as Little Red Cap, swindles the grandmother into letting him in. He then devours her and dons her clothing. When Little Red Cap arrives, the wolf, whose appetite was merely whetted by the frail grandmother, makes a meal out of the young girl. Happily, a brave woodsman arrives to rescue the both of them.
