Kids will love following along as the hen, with no help from her friends the duck, the dog, and the cat, goes through the steps of making a pizza-shopping for supplies, making the dough, and adding the toppings. But despite their initial resistance, the hen's friends come through in the end and help out in a refreshing and surprising way.

The Little Red Hen Makes Pizza May 20, 2007
My kindergarten class loves this retelling with one of their favorite foods.
Great for kids, fun for adults Apr 16, 2006
This is a lovely story with witty illustrations. I've read it many times to my kids, and we still find it fun. No need to replace the original with this one if it's a moral you're seeking. Rest assured that the dinner guests help clean up. And just enjoy this wonderful book!
Very funny, beautiful illustrations Jul 17, 2005
You know the story. The hen asks for help, gets none, but in the end (in this version) everyone is happy. It's an amusing, upbeat version of The Little Red Hen.
The illustrations make this book wonderful. The collages are gorgeous and highly detailed. There are little funnies for the big people sprinkled throughout, too. This is a wonderful book to share.
Learning to Share is an Important Moral Mar 17, 2005
From a mom who has two children under the age of six, this book hits home in the sharing department. Granted the other characters don't help the hen put the pizza together, but they do help clean up. It's a nice twist on the classic that I grew up with. It's become a must-read at least twice during the course of the day in our house.
