What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Ruby’s mind is always full of ideas. One day, she finds some old boards and decides to build something. She invites her brothers to help, but they just laugh and tell her she doesn’t know how to build. “Then I’ll learn,” she says. And she does! When she creates a dazzling fort that they all want to play in, it is Ruby who has the last laugh. With sprightly text and winsome pictures, this modern spin on the timeless favorite The Little Red Hen celebrates the pluck and ingenuity of young creators everywhere!

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.5 / 7.0

This is a clever engineering twist on the classic “Little Red Hen” tale, and I appreciated Ruby’s self-confidence and the way the adults in her life support her in her fort building. The sibling interactions, while perhaps realistic, leave something to be desired, although in the end everyone contributes and plays nice, which is a win.
