In this Armenian version of the classic, Little Red Hood (Garmir Klghanotz) has set out to Med? Mayreeg's (Grandma's) house to bring her sick grandmother some freshly baked iamajun. Little does she know, the kesh kayl (bad wolf) is hot on her trail, as Iamajun is his favorite food to eat! The kesh kayl tricks Little Red Hood and arrives at Medz Mayreeg's house before her, hungrily waiting for the Iamajun to arrive. The kayl's plot to steal the Iamajun is ultimately foiled when Medz Mayreeg and some lumberjacks arrive on the scene to rescue Little Red Hood and the Iamajun. Exciting full-color illustrations bring the story to life, depicting beautiful Armenian landscapes and characters that look stereotypically Armenian. The book is written in Arm-English (English with some Armenian words) and offers a fun way to teach children about Armenian language and culture, in a familiar story setting. A glossary of Armenian words and pronunciation guide are included to help readers learn the meanings of the Armenian words and to pronounce them correctly.
