Little Red Riding Hood
PAGE 1/2 Caperucita Roja
PAGINA 1/2
Once upon a time there was a dear little girl who was loved by every one who looked at her, but most of all by her grandmother, and there was nothing that she would not have given to the child. Once she gave her a little cap of red velvet, which suited her so well that she would never wear anything else. So she was always calledLittle Red Riding Hood. Había una vez una adorable niña que era amada por todo aquel que le miraba, pero sobretodo por su abuela, y no había nada que ella no le habría dado a la niña. Una vez, ella le dio un pequeña casaca de terciopelo rojo, que le quedaba tan bien que ella no vestía otra prenda. Así fue que siempre le decían Caperucita Roja.
One day her mother said to her, "Come, Little Red RidingHood, here is a piece of cake and a bottle of wine. Take them to your grandmother, she is ill and weak, and they will do her good. Set out before it gets hot, and when you are going, walk nicely and quietly and do not run off the path, or you may fall and break the bottle, and then your grandmother will get nothing. And when you go into her room, don't forget to say, good-morning, and don't peepinto every corner before you do it." I will take great care, said Little Red Riding Hood to her mother, and left Un día su madre le dijo, "Ven, Caperucita Roja, aquí hay un trozo de torta y una botella de vino. Llévalas a tu abuela, ella está enferma y débil, y le harán bien. Emprende tu viaje antes que haga calor, y cuando vayas, camina bien y tranquila y no te apartes del sendero, o puedescaerte y romper la botella, y entonces tu abuela no tendrá nada. Y cuando entres a su cuarto, no te olvides de decir, buenos días, y no curiosees en cada rincón antes de hacerlo." "Tendré especial cuidado", dijo Caperucita Roja a su madre, y se fue.
The grandmother lived out in the wood, half a league from the village, and just as Little Red Riding Hood entered the wood, a wolf met her. Little RedRiding Hood did not know what a wicked creature he was, and was not at all afraid of him. La abuela vivía hacia el bosque, a media legua de la aldea, y apenas Caperucita Roja entró en el bosque, un lobo la encontró en el camino. Caperucita Roja desconocía qué criatura perversa era él, y no le tuvo miedo.
"Good-day, Little Red Riding Hood," said he.
"Thank you kindly, wolf."
"Whither away soearly, Little Red Riding Hood?"
"To my grandmother's."
"What have you got in your apron?"
"Cake and wine. Yesterday was baking-day, so poor sick grandmother is to have something good, to make her stronger."
"Where does your grandmother live, Little Red Riding Hood?"
"A good quarter of a league farther on in the wood. Her house stands under the three large oak-trees. You surely must know it,"replied Little Red Riding Hood. "Buenos dias, Caperucita Roja," le dijo.
"Gracias , lobo."
"¿Andando lejos tan temprano, Caperucita Roja?"
"A la casa de mi abuela. "
"¿Qué traes en tu delantal?"
"Torta y vino. Ayer fue dia de hornear, así que la abuela enferma tendrá algo bueno que la fortalezca."
"¿Dónde vive tu abuela, Caperucita Roja?"
"A un buen cuarto de legua en el interior delbosque. Su casa está debajo de los tres grandes robles. Seguramente usted la conoce", respondió Caperucita Roja.
The wolf thought to himself, "What a tender young creature. She will be better to eat than the old woman. I must act carefully." So he walked for a short time by the side of Little Red Riding Hood, and then he said, "See Little Red Riding Hood, how pretty the flowers are about here — why doyou not look around? 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 very merry.” El lobo pensó: "Qué criatura joven y tierna. Será más fácil de comer que la anciana. Debo actuar con cuidado." Entonces caminó un rato al lado de Caperucita Roja, y luego dijo,...
