About The Book

Rooster has come a long way for his new job in a new country, but finds he has trouble communicating with the locals in this special and boldly illustrated picture book.

Rooster is nervous to start his brand-new job in a brand-new country, but most of all he’s excited. He’s always been great at his job and knows how to cock-a-doodle-doo and wake people up!

But here, so far from home, nothing seems to be working no matter how loud or how long Rooster crows. Can Rooster find a way to communicate with his new neighbors?
