There are 35 versions of the story of Little Red Riding Hood and the tale goes back more than 2,600 years. As the Telegraph article notes:
Whilst the European version tells the story of a little girl who is tricked by a wolf masquerading as her grandmother, in the Chinese version a tiger replaces the wolf.
In Iran, where it would be considered odd for a young girl to roam alone, the story features a little boy.
