Who will help the little red elf prepare for Christmas?

This clever retelling of "The Little Red Hen" features a little red elf and her lazy friends: the hare, the penguin, and the reindeer. Everyone knows elves are industrious and always helping others. But when the Little Red Elf finds some pinecones, she asks for some help with planting them, watering them, and decorating the tree that grows from them. Not surprisingly, her friends decline.

It isn’t difficult for the Little Red Elf to stay positive, but on Christmas Day, after she’s cleaned all by herself and prepared treats all by herself, who will help her open all the presents under the beautiful tree?

Adorable illustrations by Rosalinde Bonnet are an abundance of cute and will put readers young and old in the proper holiday spirit.
