A blue northern's a-blowin', and Miss Billie Armadilly is hankering to make a pot of chili! Only she needs to fix it all by herself because Tex the tarantula, Mackie the mockingbird, and Taffy the horned toad are to busy to lend a hand. Well, she'll eat it all by herself, too! But then the smell of chili cooking in the cold night brings her friends one by one, back to Miss Billie's door. What's a lady armadillo to do? Helen Ketteman's Texas-style spin on "The Little Red Hen" is joined by the Southwestern warmth of Will Terry's paintings for a spicy and satisfying story time.
