What a treasure of a book! This made it to our house because it is on the Ambleside Online Year 2 free reading list. I can't think of a better way to introduce my seven-year-old to a bit of Chaucer. Maybe it's just that I remember my own foray into chicken-keeping so fondly, but I was enchanted by this story of a proud, beautiful rooster who learns a lesson about trusting to flattery. The lovely illustrations really make the book. They are charming, evocative, and reminiscent of the art of the time period. I hope my children like it as much as I did.
