As everybody knows, a story can have different interpretations, from different approaches, always depending on who the storyteller is. The narrator, as the title indicates, is the wolf himself. A main character that tells us his experiences in that terrible day at the grandmother’s house.

From the foreword: “What happens is that Little Red Riding Hood had a better coverage in the media than me. Of course, she is so cute, so sweet. A girl! Then, the journalists and the writers saw me: I’m hairy, with big ears, big teeth. They say I look ferocious although I have been a vegetarian for the last 14 years. I tried by all means to clean up my image, but every time someone sees me near his or her house starts trying to shoot me. I don’t even have the right to answer back. No, no. This is why I try to explain myself through this text”.
