Jaunty background music sets the stage for the classic tale of the Little Red Hen. The chatty goose, the worthless cat, and the lazy dog share a home with their mistress but none of the work until that famous moment of realization. Listeners will chime in with the "Not I!"s as the Little Red Hen tends to the assorted tasks of raising her fine crop of wheat by herself. So it goes with the baking until the aroma of fresh bread wafts throughout the cottage. Kathleen McInerney's pace is as brisk as the Hen's as she tends to her farming and baking. McInerney divulges none of the Hen's displeasure with the animals until she upbraids them at story's end. A.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
