The long, cold winter was over. The little red hen had changed and the other chickens picked on her now, or ignored her altogether. Then one day a big black dog came to the farm in search of a home. The dog was humble and lonesome. The hen was cocky, and lonesome, too. A strange and wonderful friendship grew between them. The dog protected the little red hen, but who would protect the big black dog from being chased off the farm? Who would convince the man who owned the farm that the dog truly belonged there?

  This Book Is Sweet but Funny!

A little red hen freezes her toes off in the winter. A black dog comes from nowhere to protect the hen-- but the farmer always sends him away! I think that if you read this book, you will give it five stars, too!
