Overview

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A little boy sits in his grandfather's wheelbarrow taking a ride--bumpety bumpety bump--while the little red hen follows. What is the little hen up to? The boy picks tomatoes, lettuce, onions, beans, and cucumbers. Meanwhile, the hen continues to watch everything the boy does. At the end of this charming story, the hen finally stops following him. The boy finds the hen sitting proudly on her nest, having laid an egg. A well-known artist who received the Kate Greenaway Award in 1974, Hutchins enchants readers with her wonderfully crafted illustrations, which are accompanied by rhythmical language. 2006, Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 3 up.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A little boy and his grandfather have a fun-filled time digging up potatoes, carrots, onions, beans, and other vegetables. "Bumpety bump, bumpety bump, up and down" is what they say each time the boy returns to the wheelbarrow and grandpa pushes him and the bounty all over the farm. A little red hen accompanies them on every page as the boy chatters and the grandfather listens, pushing through the beans, beets, lettuce, and cucumbers. Finally, after they pick some berries, the little hen stops following them. It seems that she has a special surprise to share. A sweet, comical look at crops and caregivers, illustrated with amusing art in vivid colors.-Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The simple verse that accompanies a wheelbarrow-borne boy ("bumpety bumpety bump") and his burly grandfather as they harvest a garden is background music to Hutchins's trademark art. The colors of the plants are lush and saturated, but also true to form. The two gardeners have an enjoyable three-dimensionality, with a depth and tactility that makes them appear as if they have been fashioned out of clay. Particularly fun-and painlessly instructive-is that Hutchins brings the underground into play, giving young readers a chance to see roots and tubers going about their important work. Along for the garden tour is a red hen quiet as a shadow to whom the boy points out what he can do as he picks the vegetables. She caps the show by providing her own contribution to what will surely be a grand feast. Good enough to make the stomach start rumbling. (Picture book. 3-5)

Meet the Author

Pat Hutchins, one of seven children, was born in Yorkshire, England, and grew up in the surrounding countryside, which she still loves. At a very early age she knew that she wanted to be an artist and was encouraged by an elderly couple who would give her a chocolate bar for each picture she drew. A local art school offered her a scholarship and she studied there for three years, continuing her training at Leeds College of Art, where she specialized in illustration. Her career in the children's book field began with the highly acclaimed Rosie's Walk, a 1968 ALA Notable Book. Since then she has written five novels and created more than twenty-five picture books. She was awarded England's prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1974 for The Wind Blew. Pat Hutchins lives with her husband in London, England.

    Awesome

    This is a wonderful read. The illustrations are charming. The text is predictible for youngsters, but it has a twist at the end. Great storyline of a grandson helping his grandfather in the garden.
