In an African twist to the classic Little Red Riding Hood tale, Little Red has to travel through the safari to bring her Aunt Rosie spot medicine. She passes by a wide variety of safari animals until she encounters a Very Hungry Lion. When he decides to dress up as Aunt Rosie so he can eat Little Red, the little girl knows exactly what’s going on and decides to teach the lion an important lesson. She makes him fix up his hair, brush his teeth, and wear much better clothes until finally the Lion learns his lesson and decides to be nice.
