Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Alma Flor Ada returns to the Hidden Forest a third time for With Love, Little Red Hen, illus. by Leslie Tryon, once again relaying her tale through correspondence from storybook characters. Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and others surprise the industrious but stressed-out Ms. Hen by secretly cultivating her corn, while two wolves plot to kidnap her for a chicken dinner.

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3-In this engaging sequel to Ada's Dear Peter Rabbit (1994) and Yours Truly, Goldilocks (1998, both Atheneum), the Little Red Hen and her chicks move into the Happy Valley section of the Hidden Forest. The hen's request for help from her lazy neighbors is met with the familiar chorus, "Not I." She writes of her new surroundings and adventures in letters to her friend Hetty Henny. Little does she know that she is the topic of conversation in letters between Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks, who secretly decide to give her a hand. But not all is happy in Happy Valley with Wolfy Lupus and Fer O'Cious trying to make meals out of their neighbors. Hetty has a close call, but her scissors, needle, and thread provide her with a way out of trouble. Finally, when the Little Red Hen throws a party for her neighbors, the bad guys lose their opportunity to make a chicken dinner and slink off in shame and disappointment. Tryon's charming pen-and-ink with watercolor illustrations depict a bucolic paradise with neighbors who look out for one another. Team the three Hidden Forest books with Janet and Allan Ahlberg's The Jolly Postman (Little, Brown, 1986) and Each Peach Pear Plum (Viking, 1979) for a fun look at nursery rhymes and at letter writing.

Format: Hardcover
This book tells the familiar story of a the little red hen who gets others to help her plant a garden to feed her brood. The story is told through a series of letters to and from the Little Red Hen and Hetty Hen, Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks, the Wolf, and even Peter Rabbit. Because of the continuously changing perspective in the authorship of the letters, the storyline would probably be too sophisticated for young readers to follow- -the book might be most appropriate for children 7 years and up. The plot, with its premeditated murder of the chicken, may also be a little scary for young ones. The vocabulary is fairly advanced and includes some suitable challenges for older readers. The book includes about 1200 words.

I bought this as a gift for a friend. She really liked it. I peeked at it before giving it to her and liked it too. It's sort of a fractured Fairy Tale. CUTE!

I searched for this book to add to a Christmas gift for my friend. I bought it to go with a ceramic baking dish that is a red hen. The book is so well illistrated and there is a bit of a twist in the story of the Little Red Hen. I am sure she will love it!
