“House that Jack built. Little Red Riding Hood.” is a collection of the two most famous folktales and fairy tales, which was retold and illustrated by W.W. Denslow in 1903.
The “House that Jack built” is a famous rhyme, which begins with the following words:
“This is the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.
This is the rat
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.”
The “Red Riding Hood” retold by W.W. Denslow has a very nice and kind ending, which will be appreciated by kids.
“Little Red Riding Hood named the wolf, Towser, and sent him to his friends in the wild wood to tell them how well he was treated, and what a good time he had at the home of Riding Hood, so many wolves came, and lived in the cottages of the woodmen and farmers of that country and proved to be useful.
And it is to this little girl, of the olden time, so long ago, we owe our thanks, for giving to us, that trusty and faithful friend;—THE DOG.”
