The wolf thought to himself, “What a tender, young creature! What a nice, plump mouthful — she will be better to eat than the old woman. I must act craftily, so as to catch both.” So he walked for a short time by the side of Little Red Cap, and then he said, “See, Little Red Cap, how pretty the flowers are about here — why do you not look round? I believe, too that you do not hear how sweetly the little birds are singing; you walk gravely along as if you were going to school, while everything else out here in the wood is merry.”
Little Red Cap raised her eyes and when she saw the sunbeams dancing here and there through the trees, and pretty flowers growing everywhere, she thought, “Suppose I take Grandmother a fresh nosegay; that would please her, too. It is so early in the day that I shall still get there in good time;” and so she ran from the path into the wood to look for flowers.
