Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf... with a Twist


Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes is a collection of poems published in 1982. They are a parody of traditional folk tales in verse. Dahl gives a re-interpretation of six well-known fairy tales, featuring surprise endings in place of the traditional happily-ever-after. They are known for their unsentimental, often very dark humour.
This lesson proposal features Dahl's "Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf" . Students have to figure out the missing words based on the rhyming pattern of the poem. Although it is a fairy tale, due to its unexpected ending it can be used with both young learners and teenagers. Level B2.
