About the Book

Little Red Hen is a time-tested cautionary tale about how we reap what we sow.

When the 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 guess who eats the cake by herself in the end?

The Caldecott Honor artist 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!
