Lillian Brown takes the story of "Little Red Riding Hood" to bed with her, intent upon reading it, but her mother finds her and turns out the light. When all is quiet, she takes out the book, turns on the light and reads the story to the end. She falls asleep and, impressed with her reading, dreams that she herself is the little heroine. Then all the incidents of the story are vividly revealed, including the adventures with the crafty and hungry wolf. Recoiling in terror from the dangerous situation, she rolls out of bed. Half awake, with the spell of the dream upon her, she imagines the wolf is still in her room. As she comes to herself she realizes that she has paid the penalty for naughtiness in disobeying her mother, and crawling back to bed, hides herself under the covers in childish contrition, and falls into peaceful slumber.
