A simple barnyard tale for very young children.
Bernard, a proud, speckled rooster, takes his job of waking everybody up very seriously. And he's usually happy. But today he's been cross with the dog, the chickens, the pony, and even Lucy, who brings him food every day. What could be the matter? It turns out to be wounded pride: there's a new rooster weather vane on the farmhouse, and it's higher off the ground than Bernard's usual crowing perch. With a little help from his friends, Bernard sets things straight for his morning "Cock-a-doodle-doo."
Mary Wormell brings realistic childlike emotions to light in the simplest of words and through her bold and colorful linoleum-cut pictures.
