Little Red Hen finds some grains of wheat but when she asks the duck, the goose and the turkey to help her plant them they all have one answer: “I can’t possibly help you, I’m far too busy.” When Little Red Hen has finally grown the wheat, harvested it, turned it into flour and baked the bread the others are only too delighted to help her eat it – but will she let them? And who is that lurking in the background? The gentle repetition and humorous second story unfolding in the illustrations make this a joyful retelling of the classic fable.
