                      Fig1 (above): WeThreeCluB Roald Dahl Revolting Rhymes Poster.

"The small girl smiles. One eyelid flickers. She whips a pistol from her knickers." Roald Dahl

The WeThreeClub is run by husband and wife team Chris and Alex White from their design studio based in Cambridge, UK. They were approached by Galerie F in Chicago to take part in their exhibition 'The Amazing Mr Dahl' and this is the bold Red Riding Hood poster that they produced. Chris and Alex have cleverly accessorized Little Red to include some potent messages and references; including the three little pigs with Little Red's hand bag having trotters and a tail. The poor wolf is dead and little red is wearing him as a fur coat. The illustration though seeming benign certainly questions and changes the balance about who is evil as of course Roald Dahl's poem does.
