The Big Bad Wolf is a fictional wolf appearing in cautionary tales which can be traced back to the 10th century. The stories have mellowed over the centuries. In modern versions of Little Red Riding Hood the grandmother is locked in the closet instead of being eaten. In 14th century France it was the ‘False grandmother’, and not always a wolf, sometimes an ogre! This is likely where the famous, lines come from, “Goodness, what big teeth you have!”…...”All the better to eat you with”!
