Ruby's mind is always full of ideas. One day, she finds some old boards and decides to build something. She invites her brothers to help, but they just laugh and tell her she doesn't know how to build. "Then I'll learn," she says. And she does! When she creates a dazzling fort that they all want to play in, it is Ruby who has the last laugh.
With sprightly text and winsome pictures, this modern spin on the timeless favorite The Little Red Hen celebrates the pluck and ingenuity of young creators everywhere!
"This delightful retelling of the old story of 'The Little Red Hen' is perfect for storytime or one-on-one sharing. It also reminds girls that they can do whatever they set their minds to do." — School Library Journal
"In this update of 'The Little Red Hen,' debut author Maier... keeps her prose spare and preserves the rhythms and taglines of the original (“‘Fine,’ said Ruby. ‘I’ll hammer them myself.’ And she did.”) Ruby’s satisfaction is palpable, and readers won’t fail to grasp the message of self-sufficiency." — Publishers Weekly
