A rooster learns his sound(s)

Inspired by a pep talk from a cat, a rooster named Bob who's been spending his days merely clucking and never crowing flies the coop to find his true voice. Along the way, he meets many animals who teach him their sounds - but unfortunately not the one he's looking for. Away from the farm all night long, Bob is greeted early in the morning by just the right noise. It's dark by the time he gets back to the henhouse, and when a dangerous fox intrudes, Bob has an urgent reason to try his new crow before daybreak - but "cock-a-doodle-do" alone may not be enough to do the trick.

The tongue-in-cheek text and lively pictures will make this book a perfect story-time selection.

Tracey Campbell Pearson is the author and illustrator of many books for children, including Myrtle and Where Does Joe Go? She lives in Jericho Center, Vermont.

Editorial Reviews

"Bob has a problem. Living as he does among the chickens, all he can do is cluck. But henrietta the cat sets him straight. 'Bob . . . You need to stop clucking and learn how to crow . . . That's what roosters do.' This advice sends him on a search among the animals of field and forest for one who will teach him to crow . . . The droll, repititious text, perfect for reading aloud, is delightfully complemented by birght, lively watercolor illustrations." -Starred, School Library Journal"A rooster with a bit of an identity crisis takes center coop in this lighthearted picture book about the sounds various animals make . . . Kicky pencil-and-watercolor scenes give this simple barnyard tale a vibrant sense of sound and movement . . . Offers readers something to crow about." -Publishers Weekly"A visual treat for lap or group sharing." -Booklist
