Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2011 Kids' Next List
“Bright, wild, and visually wacky describes this fresh update of the well-known morality tale The Little Red Hen. Father-and-daughter artists, the Emberleys bring life and fun to this rousing story that will be cheered by teachers and preschoolers alike.”
-- Maureen Palacios, Once Upon a Time, Montrose, CA


Description

In this sparkling version of a classic tale, Red Hen finds a recipe for a Simply Splendid Cake and asks her friends the cat, the rat, and the frog to help with the preparations. But it seems as though her friends want no part in the cake until it’s ready to eat. Will they decide to pitch in, or let Red Hen do all of the hard work?
