Little Red and the Wolf

Last night at our Cloth-a-Dollics  meeting, we shared our dolls made based on the theme "Fractured Fairy Tales".  There were eleven dolls shown, all wonderful and creative.  My contribution was based on "Little Red Riding Hood", the classic fairy tale.  In my version Little Red becomes very frustrated with the townfolk chasing the wolf and with the wolf creating havoc in the woods so she uses her brain and comes us with a plan:
Little Red is 16" tall.  I especially loved making her cape and red boots.

Little Red says to the Wolf, "Wolf I will bring you a picnic basket full of food every week if you agree not to frighten any more little girls or grandmothers.  The twofolk have agreed that they will not chase you as long as you stick to this plan.  What do you say Wolf?"

The Wolf decided that it was a very good plan indeed and even accepted the special tie that Little Red gave him to show him and everyone that he was serious about keeping his word.

To this day Little Red, who is now town mayor and known as Big Red, meets with the Wolf (who is still wearing his tie) every week and together they have a picnic and discuss the week's events.  They have become fast friends and help each other solve problems both in the town and in the forest!

 The moral of this story is, negotiate and try not to devour strangers, as they may become friends when given a second chance!
