This delightful bi-lingual version of "The Little Red Hen" set in Mexico features bold colors and a new twist on an old tale. After refusing to help with the preparations, Rabbit ("I'm too jumpy to help"), Snake ("I have no arms!) and Turtle ("I'm too slow"), Iguana's friends are confused when they are not invited to the fiesta. Too late they learn the errors of their ways and the party progresses without them. A satisfying ending has the friends doing clean up and sharing the leftovers the next day with a tired but happy Iguana.
