Allen’s dynamically vibrant line and crosshatching together with his vibrant palette convey character and mood with seemingly effortless aplomb in this witty flap book. The sloth, suspicion, greed and selfishness of the Little Red Hen’s farmyard friends who have no time to help contrast amusingly with the indignation of the field mice who provide a commentary on events. As ever, Allen’s use of the flap is organic to his visual narrative, moving the story briskly and entertainingly forward. A treat.
