Once there were four friends--a pig, a duck, a cat, and a little red hen. (from the first line)
The little red hen finds none of her lazy friends willing to help her plant, harvest, or grind wheat into flour, but all are eager to eat the bread she makes from it.

Annotation:
Well-loved children's book illustrator Jerry Pinkney has created his own take on the classic folktale "The Little Red Hen." Though the hen repeatedly asks for assistance in growing and reaping the grain, as well as baking it, no other animals will help her. So when it comes time to eat it, she takes care that they get none. In stunningly realistic, carefully detailed watercolors, Pinkney has added some chicks and lazy animals to the mix for a richer story, as well as a self-portrait of himself as the miller. Jerry Pinkney is also known for his Caldecott Honor-winning picture book NOAH'S ARK. A 2006 New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year.

Praise

"Working in watercolors, ink, pencil, graphite, pastels or gouache, Pinkney takes after the early-20th-century British illustrator Arthur Rackham in the way he mixes precision of washes of color. His paintings impart a sense of mystery or possibility that's perfectly complemented by the realism of his figures, from the expressions on their faces to the folds of their clothing to the shoes on their feet." - Abby McGanney Nolan 11/12/2006

"Caldecott Honor artist Pinkney puts a sprightly spin on this classic tale with resplendent artwork that conveys the title character's energy--and her barnyard colleagues' sloth." 06/05/2006

"The text...is a bit longer than other versions, maintaining its comfortably predictable structure but with extra detail and comments...folded in--perfect, as are the pictures, for sharing with one listener or a crowd." 04/01/2006
