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: "‘Not I! said the cat. ‘Not I! said the dog. ‘Not I! said the mouse." They wont 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 Galdones 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!

Synopsis:

Galdone's dynamic, amusing pictures add much humor to the familiar tale of the industrious hen and lazy cat, dog, and mouse.

Synopsis:

All three pigs set out to seek their fortune, but two of them come to a sorry end.

Synopsis:

Praise for the Folk Tale Classics: “Just as inviting today as when they first appeared decades ago.” —School Library Journal Paul Galdones version of the classic fairy tale stands above the rest. His gentle retelling is resplendent with lush artwork and storytelling that weaves the magical tale of a princess both beautiful and kind. This lovely story is now a Folk Tale Classic, with gold foil stamping on the cover and saturated, full-color illustrations throughout. A beautiful and value-priced edition of a classic, this book deserves a place in every child's library!

Synopsis:

“Once upon a time there was a sweet little maiden who was loved by all who knew

her . . .”

So begins this classic tale about Little Red Riding Hood and her encounter with the

wolf one day when she is on her way to visit her sick grandmother. Paul Galdone has

drawn on the Brothers Grimm version of Little Red Riding Hood, and lends beautiful,

vibrant illustrations to his exciting retelling of this classic fairy tale. Small children and

Paul Galdones older fans will cheer as the old tale comes enchantingly alive in lovely,

nostalgic, full-color pictures.

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.
