The story moves along at a frenetic pace. My kindergartner enjoyed reading this story with me, relishing the parts where she could do voice-overs for the various characters - the stapler, the paper clips, the eraser, the feisty Spanish-speaking pushpin, and many more. As we were reading this delightful tale, I kept thinking this would make a great animated short! Pure fun and entertainment, this is the kind of story that will have children begging for repeated readings!
What I didn't like: As I said, I'm not sure young readers will get the humor. But to be fair, even though I spend a great deal of time will elementary students, I am from time to time surprised by what they find funny. I will withold final judgment until I have a chance to share this with my students. I do recommend that you share the original story of the Little Red Hen with young readers before sharing this story.
Recommended for: Amazon lists the reading level at ages 4-8. I would certainly recommend it for adults, but I'll have to test it out with my students before I'm comfortable making a recommendation for students.
Mrs. Archer's rating: 3 of 5 (based on illustrations alone, I would have given it a 5. Janet Stevens is an incredibly talented artist.)
