Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
An insomniac rooster reasons that if he can crow up the moon, it won't be so dark. So he does, and each night the moon gets bigger, and the hens are amazed. So are the people who throw gifts to the rooster—shoes, pots and pans, clocks, balls and even a bat or two. But just as the full moon rises, people wish to get some sleep and vow to put the rooster in a stew pot. Rooster flees to a tree where he thinks for a week, enlists the help of his friends, and so now, every fowl calls up the moon. They take rests once a month, people use earplugs and the moon comes up on schedule. "If not for a noisy rooster, who will cockadoodle do it?" Halsey's collage illustrations resemble folk art chickens on black backgrounds with gray labels; plus asides and comments that are hand-lettered above the shapes. Tinted cutouts from antique sources decorate some pages, as well. The humorous, tongue-in-cheek tone of the telling and the original song at the story's end, which encourages audiences to help sing the story, make this a strong entry for storytelling. 2001, Cavendish, $15.95. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Susan Hepler

K-Gr 3-An insomniac rooster crows up the moon so it won't be so dark. Each night the moon gets bigger, the hens are impressed, and he's convinced that the shoes, pots and pans, and clocks the people throw at him are gifts of appreciation. When the full moon rises, folks at an all-night dance vow to put the rooster in a stew pot so they can get some sleep. His confidence shaken, he flees to a tree where he thinks for a week while the moon wanes from lack of attention. But then, with the help of his rooster friends, now every night they crow the moon up on schedule (except for once a month when they rest) because "-if not for a noisy rooster, who will cockadoodle do it?" Halsey's pastiche of collage illustrations overlaid with paint resembles folk-art poultry on black backgrounds. Chicken's names, labels, asides, and comments are hand lettered in gray print and won't show well to groups but are viewable close-up. Tinted cutouts from antique sources decorate some pages, as well. The humorous, tongue-in-cheek tone of the telling and the original song at the end that encourages audiences to help sing the story make this a strong entry for storytimes.-Susan Hepler, Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
