Cot Cot Cot Cot Ca-toodle Tooooo! But one morning Rooster oversleeps, and the unthinkable happens. The sun rises without him! How can this be? What is his Gift, if it’s not to make the sun rise? With the help of Smallest Hen, proud Rooster learns just what it is that makes him special. Veteran author Pam Conrad’s delightfully funny and heartwarming tale of self-affirmation is gloriously brought to life with Eric Beddows’ rich illustrations.
