Hound Dawg is a retelling of The Little Red Hen, southern style. Bessie, Calico, and Penny work their fingers to the bone down on the cotton farm.
But Hound Dawg, he’s a couch potato . . . lazy, lazy, lazy.

Hold on now . . . something has caught Hound Dawg’s eye . . . something that changes his life forever.
