PreS-2—In this reimagining of "The Little Red Hen," our heroine decides to bake a cake. Before each step in the baking process, Red Hen asks her friends for help. "Not I," is the universal reply—until it's time to eat! The winning combination of vivid somewhat abstract artwork that practically pops off the page and Walter Mays's Julia Child—esque narration is certain to inspire smiles. A recipe for baking Red Hen's cake is included, allowing children and adults another situation for spending time together.
