Don’t give a child a book you wouldn’t read


“Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.” – George Bernard Shaw

Nothing fosters children’s imaginations better than a book. Good books can help children understand the world and learn a lot about life. They can pique their natural curiosity, impart knowledge, and hearten them to be empathetic or brave. With this in mind, the editor Gestalten has launched a new list of books and other attractive products for children entitled Little Gestalten.

Little Red Riding Hood is a fairy tale loved all over the world. Almost every child knows the story by the Brothers Grimm of the little girl who was lured from the forest path by the evil wolf. Now, everyone can rediscover it with this enchanting little book by French illustrator Clémentine Sourdais, who gives a contemporary look to this traditional tale.

Created with loving attention to detail, Sourdais’ cut-out images give the book an extraordinary haptic quality that make it a pleasure to feel and behold. Her unique settings not only make the woods, the big bad wolf, and grandmother’s house come alive on the page, but they can also be transformed into a dancing play of shadows on a wall. Held in front of a light and unfolded, this book becomes a true adventure, inviting its young readers to marvel at and experience Little Red Riding Hood’s journey in a whole new way.
