“Cluck! cluck! cluck!” said Red Hen as

she walked along “If I could find some wheat I would plant

it. Then I could have my own flour." Just then she found some big grains.

“Cluck! cluck! cluck!” said Red Hen. “Come see what I have found!” “Squeak!” There was Black Rat. Very fine!said Black Rat, very fast. “QUACK! QUACK !” up waddled Fat Goose. “VERY FINE," said she. “UMPH! UMPH! UMPH!" grunted

White Pig, as he came up slowly. “VERY FINE,” said he, very slowly. “Who will plant the wheat?” asked

Red Hen.
"I won't," squeaked Black Rat.
“I won't," quacked Fat Goose.
"I WON'T,” grunted White Pig.
“Then I shall do it myself,” said Red

Hen. And she did.
Pretty soon the wheat was ripe.

“Who will cut this wheat?" asked Red

Hen. I won't,squeaked Black Rat. “I won't,” quacked Fat Goose. "I WON'T,” grunted White Pig. “Then I shall do it myself,” said Red

Hen. And she did. When the wheat was cut Red Hen asked,

“Who will take it to the mill ?” I won't,” squeaked Black Rat. “I WON'T," quacked Fat Goose. "I WON'T,” grunted White Pig. “Then I shall do it myself,” said Red

Hen. And she did. Soon she came back with the flour. Then she said, “Who will make the flour

into bread ?”

I won't,” squeaked Black Rat.
"I won't," quacked Fat Goose.
“I WON’T” grunted White Pig.
“Then I shall do it myself,” said Red

Hen. And she did.
When the bread was baked Red Hen

: asked, “Who will eat this bread ?” "I will,” squeaked Black Rat, oh, so fast! “I WILL," quacked Fat Goose, very fast. "I WILL," grunted White Pig slowly. “No, you won't,” said Red Hen. “I

shall eat it myself.” And she did.
