“When Larry was called off to new opportunities, Sunrise Farm suddenly found itself without its prized rooster.” But Farmer Jay and Farmer Kevin (who appear to be a couple) have a plan and “their plan turned out to be a scrawny little guy named Clyde.” The new little rooster tries unsuccessfully to live up to Larry’s legacy by putting on a real show every morning, but fails miserably each time. When he finally just tries to crow, well, it’s “… enough to give you goosebumps.” This barnyard tale is filled with lots of humor, wordplay, and onomatopoeia in a story about finding one’s own voice. A great choice for a read-aloud to a group or one-on-one. (Ages 4–7)
