Professional reviews

"The father and daughter Emberley duo bring the well-loved story of the Little Red Hen to life once again. Such an eye-popping rendition of this familiar baking tale needs an accompanying ear-popping audio. Walter Mayes is just the narrator for the job. He enthusiastically slides up and down his register, giving voice to a hopeful and boisterous Little Red Hen and a deep-ribbeting Frog. He s-l-o-w-s as the cat and rat drag out their "not I's" and speeds as the Little Red Hen proclaims, "Do it myself!" Jaunty music and a recipe for "simply splendid cake" complete the recording. Young listeners will return again and again to this satisfying listening package. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
