From the Inside Flap:

This fractured spin on a beloved folk tale is perfect for aspiring young writers interested in learning how their own fledgling ideas can hatch into a polished story. When the Little "Read" Hen's friends won't help her write an "egg-cellent" story, she doesn't let it ruffle her feathers-she just does it herself! Brainstorming, researching, outlining, drafting, editing, and proofing: all the ingredients of the "write" recipe for a well-crafted tale are included in this punny book.
Readers of all ages will crack up at the unflappable Little "Read" Hen as she sips her flappuccino, coops herself up, and powers up the Internet on her "eggPad" for research. She doesn't let her friends put her in a fowl mood.
Holly Stone-Barker's vibrant cut-paper illustrations add riotous fun to each page. From hand-cut straw to individual feathers, each illustration is something to crow about!
