The Little Red Hen Unauthored, Jerry Pinkney (Illustrator)


Author: Pinkney, Jerry (ILT)
ISBN: 9780803729353 Publisher: Penguin Group USA

Caldecott Medal winner Jerry Pinkney enlivens the beloved fable with cheerful and classically beautiful illustrations, making this the ideal edition for every childÕs library.

As he did with his Caldecott-winning The Lion and the Mouse, Jerry Pinkney has masterfully adapted this story of the hardworking hen and her lazy neighbors. Its Golden Rule message and sassy finale are just as relevant and satisfying as ever. Read it in tandem with PinkneyÕs Puss in Boots and The Tortoise and the Hare or David WiesnerÕs The Three Pigs.
