Translated and illustrated by Ed Young and narrated by B. D. Wong, this flawlessly produced ten-minute DVD of Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story From China, is the remarkable story of three young children and their encounter with a terrifying wolf pretending to be their grand mother, or Po Po. Creatively directed and presented by Cha-Pow and featuring music by Ernest V. Troost, Lon Po Po captivates its young readers through the active and beautifully illustrated tale of the children's swift intelligence, bravery, and trust. Lon Po Po is very highly recommended for all young viewers and readers between four and eight for its wonderful creativity and intriguing story.
