The little green witch has a problem: her lazy monster friends just won't help her make a horrible pumpkin pie. Not ghost, nor bat, nor gremlin.
Barbara McGrath's feisty retelling of "The Little Red Hen," with Martha Alexander's charming illustrations, is the perfect choice for Halloween fun.

About the Author
McGrath is a freelance writer.

Martha Alexander says that the Blackboard Bear stories were originally inspired by her four-year-old nephew, Christopher, who had a rich creative ability to entertain himself. "Blackboard Bear emerged one night, onto paper through my pencil, from the joy of recalling how Christopher acted out his exciting adventures."
