This timeless story of having your cake (and eating it, too ) comes to life with Galdone's dynamic, amusing pictures. 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 water, cut, or grind the wheat . . . or help bake a cake with it, either. So, in the end, the Little Red Hen eats the cake all by herself as well Paul Galdone's delightfully detailed ink and wash illustrations--packed with charming details--add plenty of sly humor to the well-loved story that not only offers a sage message, but also shows children what it takes to make a cake from the ground up
