Into the boiling water crashed the stones with a splash! And that was the end of the sly fox and his mother. Or maybe there's a problem with me, that I think every children's story has an everyday meaning to it?

In some versions of this tale the storyteller is careful to expand upon just how careful the Little Red Hen is in protecting her own life from sly predators. For example, she carries around a key and locks herself in her house. Here, there is no key.
Instead, we are told that the Little Red Hen lives in 'a little red henhouse, safe and sound' and presumably she chose it sensibly, knowing she is basically the most delicious and easily caught farmyard animal -- but that doesn't communicate to the In some versions of this tale the storyteller is careful to expand upon just how careful the Little Red Hen is in protecting her own life from sly predators.
Instead, we are told that the Little Red Hen lives in 'a little red henhouse, safe and sound' and presumably she chose it sensibly, knowing she is basically the most delicious and easily caught farmyard animal -- but that doesn't communicate to the reader how wily she really is because it happened off stage.
Instead, in this version, the narrator has to tell us via explanation that 'the little red hen was clever. She always got away, with a peck, peck, peck and a cluck, cluck, cluck. Her eyes are actually closed as she's strutting along in a scene reminiscent of Rosie's Walk. It's important that the reader knows the hen is smart, obviously.
Because this is a comforting tale for young readers. But more important, the fault must properly lie with the fox. The reader must be led to think the fox gets into the house despite the hen's best precautions, not because she is oblivious and stupid. Instead, the action and illustrations fail to communicate this and we need the less effective authorial intrusion. That's why I prefer versions of this story in which the hen carries around a key.
Second point: I don't buy the cause of death in this retelling. This is to do with the illustrations. Spoiler alert: The fox and his mother die because of a huge rock which they throw into the vat of boiling water. They die of splashes, in other words.
But there is no great big stone in this book -- for some reason it's been decided to use a bunch of little ones, which would not create such a big splash in the first place. But fine, I'm prepared to believe it. In an earlier scene we see the mother fox rather recklessly carting the vat of boiling water around the kitchen and I had already thought, "Hell, she's getting scalded, with it splashing over like that.
There's no way that second pot splash killed the foxes if that first splash didn't at least give the mother a good scalding. My nephew and I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read again.
