More cookery humor that little ones will eat up! In a funny hip version of the Little Red Hen tale, this time Little Red Hen decides to make a pizza. Of course she needs a pizza pan, and then flour, and then the right cheese, and each time asking the dog, the cat and the duck for help. Since they are 'too busy' she makes several trips to the store herself getting the needed items along with "some other stuff". The three friends come through in the end when they help eat the pizza and then do the dishes. Cut paper illustrations of the antics will keep kids returning for many re-reads.
