Little Red Riding Hood

A close up detail of my daughter Tessa as Little Red Riding Hood looking in at the disguised wolf posing as her grandmother.

A close up detail of the climactic action in the story.

Details Note; The bullet glass panes of the window are reflected on the wine bottle and all of the objects tossed in the air match the objects in the previous illustrations prior to this one.

The story has three very violent moments. As an illustrator how do you present them with out terrifying a child or adult for that matter.
