Book Overview

Kids love pizza, and they will love this cleverly illustrated, up-to-date retelling of the traditional Little Red Hen story. In this new version, the intrepid fowl spies a can of tomato sauce in her cupboard and knows it's time to make a lovely little pizza.

Children will enjoy following the process of making a pizza as the Little Red Hen--who can get no help from the duck, the dog, or the cat--buys an appropriate pan, kneads the dough, cuts and chops vegetables (and other stuff) for a fabulous topping, and bakes a humongous pizza (It was lovely, but it wasn't little). Despite many a Not I, the duck, the dog, and the cat finally do help out (of course) in ways that will surprise and delight young readers.

Amy Walrod's exuberant, witty cut-paper art combines interesting composition with humorous expression and detail to create a world that gives a special accent to the offbeat adaptation.

It was a traditional take on the cute story and had a slightly different ending which my students were not necessarily expecting. But I liked the ending as a good example of kindness, sharing, and then sneaking in to help when someone shares and is kind to me. The students also enjoyed the added enigmatic elements, like the can of worms on the shelf or the extras that would buy the Little Red Hen.
   Revisionist Version That Distorts The Important Life Lesson In The Classic Childs Tale
I was shocked to find out that the important life lesson in this classic children's story had been distorted in this revised story. Instead of participating in the fruits of the hen's labor, the slackers in this version refused to eat the hen's pizza anyway. In an apparent epiphany, they do clean up. Since young children enjoy hearing stories repeatedly, so I purchased this book at the same time I ordered the classic version, so my grandchildren could read two slightly different versions. After reading this revisionist version, I threw it away. The classic version is the life lesson I want my grandchildren to learn and is the only version I gave them. The illustrations and the physical book were fine. It is the revised message that I object and is the reason I threw the book away and did not recommend it to others.
   Bad packaging.
I realized it was paper back, but EHY WAS IT FOLDED IN ENVELOPE???? What do you think?
   Great Updated Story
As a former storyteller at our local library, I know he will love this book. He and his mother can discuss the story, read it and then make pizzas!
   Good fun read.
Book is fun : I use it in a home lesson plan and is often requested.
   Great book for Pizza theme in preschool!
Cute pictures, great text for telling and a predictable spin on the traditional Little Red Henn.
   Kiddos love it!
After reading The Little Red Hen several times during the school year, my children loved this version of the classic story!
   Great version of the little red hen
We first read this at the library, and my son kept talking about it, so we bought a copy for home. In this version she makes pizza. Instead of refusing to share at the end because nobody helped her, she shares the pizza with her three friends who then help with the washing up. Positive message and fun illustrations in a collage style.
