We recently read Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story from China by Ed Young. If you have not read it, we highly recommend you do! We thought it was a fantastic story, and think you will enjoy the twist in the plot. We don’t want to give it away, but we will tell you in this version, the children trick the wolf into climbing into a basket by telling him he must try the delicious Ginkgo nuts from the very tall Ginkgo tree. The children made the nuts sound so delicious, we decided to create our own posters advertising Ginkgo nuts. Watch the 30 Hands video below to see if we can persuade you into believing this is the most fantastic food you will ever taste!
