This timeless story of having your cake (and eating it, too!) comes to life with Paul Galdone's very popular version with his dynamic, amusing pictures in Little Red Hen. A classic storybook for all young readers--and a cautionary tale for lazy ones. Little Red Hen is a time-tested tale about how we reap what we sow.When the Little Red Hen asks a cat, dog, and mouse for help planting some wheat, she gets no takers: "'Not I!' said the cat. 'Not I!' said the dog. 'Not I!' said the mouse." They won't help water, cut, or grind the wheat . . . or help bake a cake with her, either. So, in the end, what is the Little Red Hen to do!
