A captivating retelling of Little Red Riding Hood for 3-6 year olds
Maanika and the Wolf blends the past and the present, the real and the imagined, as a grandmother returns to her childhood bedroom recalling stories from when she was a young girl. Watch as she brings her Indian dressing-up box back to life and re-enacts her own version of Little Red Riding Hood. But why is there another wolf on the phone and why does her granddaughter Ruby keep trying to change the story?
Join us in Maanika’s room to find out in this gentle and captivating tale for 3-6 year olds.
