The lazy rooster and the mischievous mouse can’t be bothered to help the little red hen tend her ear of wheat. They can’t be bothered to help her take it to the miller either, or bake it into bread. But when her loaf of warm, fragrant bread is ready, the little red hen is not at all inclined to share it with them. The rooster and the mouse soon mend their ways! This lively version of the classic tale is given contemporary treatment with dynamic, textured illustrations which consist of collage hung from wires then photographed by artist Kate Slater.
Audio CD includes two versions of the story: one with page-turn chimes and one without.
