  • Once upon a time, there was a Little Red Hen. She lived alone in a yellow hut at the edge of the vast, open veld.

  • First on her list was flour.

    She went to a sheep grazing with his friends.

    Morning, Sheep, said Little Red Hen. Im going

    to bake bread. Could you get me some wheat

    from the field to make flour?

  • No, No, No, bleated Sheep, turning

    away. NoT I.

    Then Ill do it myself, said Little Red Hen,

    crestfallen.

  • It was a lovely day and

    Little Red Hen soon

    cheered up. Next on

    her list was honey.

  • Striped Honey Badger was digging for

    honey. Little Red Hen curtsied and

    stretched out her wings.

    Pardon me, Honey Badger. Im going

    to bake bread and I need some honey.

    Would you get me a little, please?

    No, No, No, grunted Honey Badger.

    NoT I.

    Then Ill do it myself, said Little Red Hen.

  • The next thing she needed was water, so she

    went to the dam where a fat, fluffy cat was

    sunning herself.

    Hello, Cat. The cat opened one golden eye.

    Little Red Hen took a step backwards.

  • Im going to bake bread. Would you get me

    some water?

    oH No, No, No, yawned Cat, flicking

    her tail. NoT I.

    Then Ill do it myself, said Little Red Hen.

  • Little Red Hens feathers were ruffled. But she

    was not the kind of hen who gave up easily,

    so she went to the hut. A dog was dozing on

    the kitchen floor.

    Dog, squawked Little Red Hen.

    What? growled Dog.

    Im going to bake bread, said Little Red Hen.

    Will you please get me a pinch of salt to make

    my bread tasty and some yeast to make it rise?

    NoT I, said Dog. Dont you know to let

    sleeping dogs lie?

    And he settled his shaggy head back onto his

    paws and went back to sleep.

    Then Ill do it myself, said Little Red Hen.

  • Little Red Hen was fed up. She marched

    bravely over to the kraal where a cow

    stood chewing the cud.

    Good morning, Cow, said Little Red Hen.

    May I have some milk to make a little

    butter for my bread?

    What bread, you silly Little Red Hen?

    asked Cow rudely. Moo. NoT I.

    Then Ill do it myself, said Little Red Hen.
