Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 5-9. Jaunty art from the Disney archives graces every page in Roberts' sprightly retelling of a well-known Chaucerian tale. Chanticleer, his cockiness enhanced by the mistaken impression that his crowing makes the sun rise as well as by the admiration of the hens, runs for mayor. His election turns him into a nagging taskmaster, who demands that the hens produce more and more eggs. Thus, when sneaky Reynard enters the village, the frazzled hens are only too happy to respond to the fox's attention. He easily gains their support when he decides to oppose Chanticleer in the next election. His pride and anger aroused, the rooster challenges Se{{ยค}}nor Poco Loco, Reynard's friend and an undefeated dueler, to a duel. Just at the crucial moment, Chanticleer is saved by the village police dog. The fox escapes, and Chanticleer announces a wholesome balance between work and play for the hens. The cartoon-style line and color wash drawings reveal the spunky and energetic characters with panache, and the message won't be lost on young readers. A guaranteed hit and a great read-aloud.
