Helen Ketteman tells the traditional "Little Red Hen" in a dramatic "Texas" style. Determined to make a pot of hot armadilly chili, Miss Billie Armadilly will have to do so without the aid of her busy friends. She has no intention of sharing the warmth of the chili on this blistery cold day until she realizes that there is still one ingredient missing. Armadilly Chili just doesn't taste right without friends to share it with. This story is as heartwarming as a bowl of steaming hot chili. It is further enhanced by the illustrations of Will Terry.

This is a genuine Texas Alphabet book. You will find things that are specifically Texan with the historical background. My favorite is "D is for Dr. Pepper because it is a "Texas Thang." Another one of my favorite letters is "V for Valley and Vegetables," because we often forget this valuable part of Texas when we go on and on about all the cowboy stuff.
