Description

The Little Red Hen has gone through various versions and


permutations, but surely this is the first time she has a Yiddish accent. Realizing its almost Passover, the Little Red Hen says, Oy gevalt! She needs matzah for her seder dinner, and that means growing wheat. Horse, Sheep, and Dog are not interested in helping. Harvesting? Again, nope. Milling? Were resting. By now, the Little Red Hen realizes shes dealing


with a bunch of no-goodniks. She bakes the matzah (according to Jewish law . . . in just eighteen minutes) and then sets her seder table. Guess who arrives? What chutzpah! But then the Little Red Hen remembers the Haggadahs words: Let all who are hungry come and eat. Children familiar with Passover will get a kick out of this, and the ink-and-watercolor art amusingly captures both the Little Red Hens aggravation and the animals turnaround. Those really in the know might wonder about a sheep at a holiday table where lamb blood plays a major role, but, hey, at least
