I'm trying to find out how to get permission from the publisher of Helen
Dean Fish's classic story "The Little Red Hen" to borrow an image. Any information you can give me would be appreciated.
The name of the publisher that has put out the most recent version of that book is Clarion Books. Clarion Books publishes childrens books but is a division of the Houghton Mifflin Company. Heres what they recommend . . .
