Open the door.” The wolf depicts repulsive characteristics, as he not only deceives a Little Red Cap into abandoning the route but also imitates her, thus obtaining passage into the Grandmother’s home. Observing Little Red Cap as a manifestation of the reader, then one could morph the form of the wolf into the design of anything that the reader contemplates as the distant other. Furthermore, not only is the reader ascertained to be small but also a fool, who is hoodwinked into one’s own demise.

By using fantasy metaphorically and hyperbolically, she can poignantly convey her unorthodox and underlying messages. Before telling the story of Red Riding Hood, Carter establishes the nature of wolves in a folk-lore or legend style, which appears to be at least partially factual. The narrator describes wolves as malicious hunters in an ominous tone: "The wolf is carnivore incarnate and he's as cunning as he is ferocious; once he's had a taste of flesh, then nothing else will do" (Norton Anthology of Literature by Women, 2232). She tells of their desperation for food, one possible explanation for their eagerness to devour humans, but warns that the danger of falling prey to a wolf is ever-present. Beneath her descriptive background information of wolves lies Carter's real message: men are sexual predators, and hunt for flesh like wolves do.

In “Little Red Riding Hood”, the wolf tricks the child and the grandma and eats them both while in “In the Company of Wolves”, the virtuous-appearing child uses her sexuality to seduce and defeat the wolf after the wolf eats her grandmother. The moral of both authors is something akin to the common saying “trust, but verify” - those who appear trustworthy and familiar can still be a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing.
