The Armenian Version of Little Red Riding Hood by Talene Dadian White
THE CLASSIC FAIRY TALE LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD RETOLD WITH AN ARMENIAN TWIST! In this Western Armenian version of the classic, Little Red Hood (Garmeer Klghargeeg) has set out to Medz Mayreeg’s (Grandma’s) house to bring her sick grandmother some freshly baked lamajun. Little does she know, the kesh kayl (bad wolf) is hot on her trail, as lamajun is his favorite food to eat! The kesh kayl tricks Little Red Hood and arrives at Medz Mayreeg’s house before her, hungrily waiting for the lamajun to arrive. The kayl’s plot to steal the lamajun is ultimately foiled when Medz Mayreeg and some lumberjacks arrive on the scene to rescue Little Red Hood and the lamajun. Exciting full-color illustrations bring the story to life, depicting beautiful Armenian landscapes and characters that look stereotypically Armenian. Little Red Hood and the Kesh Kayl is written in Western Armenian- a delight for children who can speak and read Armenian!
