  10. 10. After reading “The Three Little Pigs” and “Little RedRiding Hood,”, both passages clearly show that wolvesprey on creatures weaker than them. In both “The ThreeLittle Pigs” and “Little Red Riding Hood,” the wolf is theantagonist and is characterized as a predator. In “TheThree Little Pigs,” the wolf destroys the three brother’sshelters and tries to eat them. He obviously has maliciousdeeds in mind. Similarly, in “Little Red Riding Hood,” thewolf actually does eat Red’s grandmother and then posesas an imposter to deceive the young girl and attempts todevour her. In conclusion, a reader of these passageswould know that wolves present danger to othercreatures.
