Red Riding Hood Town is in the Red Riding Hood Kingdom.
In town, there are several places with names and allusions to fairy tales and nursery rhymes:
- Henny Penny Bank ("Henny Penny" or "Chicken Little" (US) is a folk tale about a chicken who believes the world is coming to an end)
- Jack Horner's Pie Shop ("Little Jack Horner" is a nursery rhyme about a boy eating pie. Jack Horner appears in A Grimm Warning as a pie-eating adult)
- Pat-a-Cake Bakery ("Pat-a-cake" or "Pattycake" is an old English nursery rhyme aber a baker)
- the Shoe Inn (both a pun to the expression "shoo in", a certain and easy winner, and an allusion to the nursery rhyme about the Little Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe. The Shoe-Inn is run by the Little Old Woman, a character appearing in The Enchantress Returns and A Grimm Warning)
- and a memorial park with Humpty Dumpty's Wall, Jack and Jill Hill ("Jack and Jill" is an English nursery rhyme) and a fountain with a statue of the Boy Who Cried Wolf.
Red Riding Hood Castle is also situated in or near the town; its view can be seen from the Shoe Inn.
It is unknown if the town changed its name when Queen Red Riding Hood was deposed and the name of the kingdom was changed to Bo Peep Republic.
