Description


Beloved by generations, the funny story of reaping what you sow comes to life in this classic board book with Caldecott Honoree Paul Galdone’s dynamic, amusing pictures.

When the Little Red 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 in the end, the Little Red Hen eats the cake all by herself as well!

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!
