About the Author:

Barry Downard designed houses, played drums, and worked as an art director before drifting into fashion and advertising photography. Inspired by the storytelling possibilities of digital photograph manipulation, he developed a unique style of photo-illustration. He lives with his wife, two Border collies, cats, and a transient population of wild and not-so-wild animals (some of whom are pictured in this book) on a small farm in the beautiful KwaZulu-Natal midlands of South Africa. The Little Red Hen is his first book.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-Downard presents a new rendition of the classic story in which the lazy duck, pig, and cat refuse to help the resourceful hen. This version elaborates a bit on how the bread is a "delicious golden brown color" and in the end the hen eats it all by herself, not with her chicks as in some retellings. However, what really sets this book apart is its modern and witty artwork. The collage photographs are generated with the assistance of a computer with delightful results. In one scene, the three animals are playing pool; another shows the little red hen riding a bicycle and wearing a helmet, glasses, and red rain boots; and in another illustration, the cat has headphones. The creative pictures are fun to pore over and will catch the interest of kids slightly older than the traditional audience for this tale.-Linda M. Kenton, San Rafael Public Library, CA
