The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet!

Author: Carmen Agra Deedy Illustrator: Eugene Yelchin

  • AGES 5 - 7 
  • Genre Comedy and Humor,Fairy Tales, Folk Tales, Fables
La Paz is a happy, but noisy village. A little peace and quiet would make it just right. So the villagers elect the bossy Don Pepe as their mayor. Before long, singing of any kind is outlawed. Even the teakettle is afraid to whistle! But there is one noisy rooster who doesn't give two mangos about this mayor's silly rules. Instead, he does what roosters were born to do. He sings: "Kee-kee-ree-KEE!"
The silenced populace, invigorated by the rooster's bravery, ousts the tyrannical mayor and returns their city to its free and clamorous state.
Carmen Deedy's masterfully crafted allegory and Eugene Yelchin's bright, whimsical mixed-media paintings celebrate the spirit of freedom, and the courage of those who are born to sing at any cost.
