This story is about a hen that found some seeds and asked her friends if they would like to help her plant the seeds. The three said no so she did it herself. The next day she poured water on the seeds and the seeds grew into large stalks of wheat. Then she asked her friends if they would like to help her cut the wheat and they said no so she did it herself .The next day she asked her friends if they would like to help her cook. They said no and she did it herself. When it was finished she asked her friends if they would like to help her eat the bread and they said I do! I do! And she said, "No" that she would eat it herself!

My opinion of this book is that I like the story because it shows people that don't treat people good but when they see that person with good things they act like they are their friends and those people are called two face people.

I recommend this book to people that are sly, tricky and sneaky.
