  • Storybook: Lon Po Po by Ed Young | Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story from China is a children's picture book translated and illustrated by Ed Young. The story is a Chinese version of the popular children's fable "Little Red Riding Hood" as retold by Young. Contrary to the original fable, in which there is only one child (little Red Riding Hood) who interacts with the nemesis of the story (the wolf), Lon Po Po has three children. It is written from the children's (in the story) point of view. The majority of the illustrations are divided into three pictures per every two pages to form a bigger picture (with a few exceptions). Young uses dark colors for the illustrations to set the tone of the story.
