Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Classic! I love this little tale about a crafty rooster. We've worked it into our homeschool classical curriculum during years 2/6. When the older kids do Canterbury Tales and the story of Chaucer, the younger set get this tale.

Editorial Reviews

"The familiar fable of the vain cock and the shrewd fox skillfully adapted and presented in picture-book form. The excellent story-telling, the beautiful pictures with their rich, sparkling colors and authentically detailed medieval background, and the clean-looking handsomely designed format make this a truly distinguished book." (BL.)
