Little Red Hen had a busy summer planting seeds, watering the soil, digging up the weeds, and harvesting the grain. Whenever she asked the dog, cat, and duck to help, they always had excuses. A crisis occurred—a wicked fox captured the goose. When Little Red Hen went to her three friends, they again made excuses, so she went to the next farm, and Brown Dog helped her rescue the goose.
Finally, harvest was over and Little Red Hen baked delicious bread which she shared with Brown Dog and the goose. When the scent of the bread reached her three friends, they asked if they could have some. Little Red Hen refused to share her bread with her lazy friends because they refused to share the work. This retelling of the classic tale demonstrates that you should not expect favors if you refuse to work.

"Suddenly Mother jumped to her feet and ran to one of the trees, a three-hundred-foot-tall redwood.
''Forever tree! Forever tree!'' she cried, smiling. She swept the skinny girl up into her arms. The child s pale skin shimmered in the golden forest light.
''Forever trees, forever trees,'' they sang, spinning in circles. The memory melted into the fog, and Eliza felt very tired. The question came again to her. It appeared out of the gray, out of the damp, out of the cold corners of this new house. The question whispered it always did the kind of whisper that sounded very loud indeed: Where had Mother gone?
Shadows appeared and disappeared in Eliza's mind. Still, she couldn't remember. She simply could not remember anything after that last story in the forest. For some reason, she wasn't terribly worried. She was a little worried, for sure, but not terribly worried, because a strange calm held the shadows and the question. It held Eliza, too.
Because love is forever.

Age Level: 2 - 8 | Grade Level: P - 3 In the town of Tandumtoo, someone forgot to say ‘Thank you.’ Eh gad! It seems to be an unwritten law in Tandumtoo to respond to any kindness by saying ‘Thank you.’ That means when someone does something nice for you, or says something nice to you, or offers to help you, and especially when someone gives you something. And that was the case here when one of the residents, Willy Saladheimer, gave a newcomer to town one of his tandumberries and the man did not say ‘Thank you.’ Oh the ruckus this started!
Naturally, as in all good children’s stories the situation was put right. The newcomer simply had a different point of view on the subject of gift giving and a different take on The Golden Rule. 30 delightful illustrations included.

Niall Carver, the farmer’s twelve-year-old son, hears a blood-curdling scream from an ancient well in the farmhouse garden. He rescues a gothic-looking, dark-haired girl in leather boots and a short dress, her limbs dappled with black markings. The girl introduces herself as Sathra.
Niall does some research and finds the truth, that Sathra has come through a time warp from the thirteenth century to the present day. At first Niall suspects she’s a banshee, though Sathra insists she’s a dryad. The distinction is important because banshees are evil, dryads the opposite. What Niall doesn’t know is that, to return to her own time, Sathra the Banshee must restore her magical powers by sacrificing a boy her own age. Niall would fit the bill perfectly, though she has to lure him to a place of sacrifice, an ancient stone circle close to the farm. Now believing Sathra is a dryad, Niall looks forward to a series of adventures similar to those in his favourite television programmes.
These adventures quickly follow, but all the while Sathra is plotting the dreaded sacrifice… (For teens)
