John Fidler

There are always two sides to every argument and in the case of Little Red Riding Hood at least four sides to the story and this is what John Fidler has created in his four sided book, Little Red Riding Hood, The Wolf, Grandma and The Woodcutter.
"It can be read by one child a page at a time as is traditional or it can be read concurrently by four children who follow a character each. we have used it in school with both the younger children and as an aid to looking at the different viewpoints of a story with the older ones. "
John Fidler's book is a monochrome, patterned book which has an almost Egyptian feeling as the characters are all in profile. The illustrations featuring the actions of all four characters are very map like and lead you around the page on complex paths of branches that weave the story together.
