Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS?The title of this slight picture book tells the whole story. However, youngsters will no doubt enjoy the simply related scenario featuring the basic cast of farm characters. The repetitive phrases, predictable plot progression, just a bit of tension, and satisfying resolution are all age appropriate. Wickstrom's pen-and-ink and watercolor cartoon illustrations are animated and bright. The expressions on the animals' faces are particularly amusing, especially the wide-eyed and bewildered rooster who can't figure out where his "cock-a-doodle-doo" has gone. A romantic, stylized look at a familiar bucolic setting where, as the final page reads "...all was right with the world."?Lee Bock, Brown County Public Libraries, Green Bay, WI

From Booklist

Ages 5-7. The rooster starts everything working quite efficiently on his farm. One day, however, as he opens his beak to crow, a bee flies in front of him and "scares the cock-a-doodle-doo right out of him." Helped by his barnyard friends, he searches for his voice, but he doesn't find it again until he must defend threatened chicks from a fox. Wickstrom's brightly colored illustrations carry the story. The character of the rooster is especially distinctive: the bird looks so frightened and anxious when his voice disappears that he'll round up a lot of audience concern. Mary Harris Veeder

All my boys have loved this book for years. Funny, and a very satisfying ending for a child. I love it, too. Why on earth is it out of print???? Our library system's only copy has now gone "missing". Read it while your library still has it!

I agree with the first reviewer...

i don't know why this book is out of print, but i'm glad we can find it at the library...There are many similair stories, but...I do really like this one the best (as does my 5 year old son since he was almost 2!) and the pictures are really nice too. I don't know why he likes it so much, but he has a thing for roosters, so...that is one big draw and the story is good!

I can't believe that this book is out of print. It was such a charming story that I practically forced my mother to read it and she hates it when I push anything onto her simply because I like it. She isn't "into" children's books like I am but even she admitted that it was a good story. I love the story and Thor Wickstrom's illustrations are an excellent companion to the text.
