Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Little Red Hen is a time-tested cautionary tale about how we reap what we sow. When the hen asks a cat, dog, and mouse for help planting some wheat, she gets no takers: "and#8216;Not I!and#8217; said the cat. and#8216;Not I!and#8217; said the dog. and#8216;Not I!and#8217; said the mouse." They wonand#8217;t water, cut, or grind the wheat . . . or help bake a cake with it, either. So guess who eats the cake by herself in the end? The Caldecott Honor artist Paul Galdoneand#8217;s delightfully detailed ink and wash illustrationsand#8212;packed with charming detailsand#8212;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!

Synopsis:

Fragility the hippo is solid on the outside and fragile on the inside. In every compliment, Fragility hears an insult.

In the face of these insults, will Fragility realize the difference between a jab and a compliment?

About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
