WHEN LAYLA'S GRANDMOTHER ATE THE WOLF (عندما أكلت جدة ليلى الذئب)
Every mom has been in this situation: after a long day's work, the little ones beg you to tell them a bedtime story and all you want to do is turn off the lights and call it a day. Siblings Rana and Jad do this to their mom, begging her to tell them their favorite story one more time: Little Red Riding Hood (known as Layla and the Wolf in Arabic).
In between trying to tell the story and dozing off into exhaustion, the story is upended: Layla picks butterflies instead of flowers on her way to see grandma; she takes the long way, while the wolf takes the short way; and grandma welcomes the wolf with open arms. Rana and Jad are amused by their mom's half asleep storytelling as they get to hear a seemingly new story altogether!
