Little Red Riding Hood
In a snow-blasted Viking village, all is not well. As the day of the sacred feast of the Winter Solstice approaches, Chief Big Red learns that the Sorceress who keeps the wild magic of the Snowy Woods under control is in trouble. it's up to the Sorceress's granddaughter, Little Red Riding Hood, to undertake a hazardous journey in order to check up on her grandmother.
Along the way, she's helped by the enigmatic Little Boy Blue, whose magic horn has a commanding effect on the were-creatures that stalk the icy forest, and somewhat hindered by her well-meaning yet woefully misguided Auntie the Dame. However she will need all the help, luck and courage she can get if she is to prevail over the dastardly Jerry Höfen, his captive fairy Stinkerbell, and their fearsome creation whose eternal hunger ensures that it will never stop hunting poor Little Red.
