Praise for The Little Red Fort by Brenda Maier, illustrated by Sonia S�nchez:

A Chicago Public Library Best Book of the Year

* "The Little Red Hen gets an appealing girl-power update...Young makers of all genders will be inspired." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"Using a narrative framework and dialogue inspired by the Little Red Hen.... Maier judiciously adapts one of the best nursery stories, keeps it simple, and makes it her own. The upbeat mixed-media illustrations are nicely varied in composition and perspective. A lively picture book that's fun to read aloud." -- Booklist

"[S�nchez's] textured illustrations and sense of humor add depth to each dynamic scene. Throughout the story, Maier's little Latina go-getter breaks gender and cultural stereotypes....empowering...." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Maier's girl-power-meets-classic folktale story line is engaging and entertaining. S�nchez's colorfully patterned and textured illustrations give dimension to a determined and endearing pigtailed heroine and her realistic multigenerational, multi-skin-toned family." -- The Horn Book

"This delightful retelling of the old story of "The Little Red Hen" is perfect for storytime or one-on-one sharing. It also reminds girls that they can do whatever they set their minds to do." -- School Library Journal

"...exuberance on every page." -- Publishers Weekly

"The repetition of key words and the predictable narrative would make this book excellent for reading aloud....The warmly colored illustrations with pops of red are.... a fitting style for a book about one child's creativity and ingenuity." -- School Library Connection, recommended
