Chanticleer and the Fox by Barbara Cooney (Categories: Home School History, Middle Ages, Caldecott Medal)

"The familiar fable of the vain cock and the shrewd fox skillfully adapted and presented in picture-book form. The excellent story-telling, the beautiful pictures with their rich, sparkling colors and authentically detailed medieval background, and the clean-looking handsomely designed format make this a truly distinguished book."-- "BL."

Introduce your young readers to Geoffrey Chaucer through one of the most delightful fables in our heritage - the story of the proud cock and the wily fox who flattered him. Chaucer told the story with vigorous rhythm and singing words; Barbara Cooney has adapted it for children and illustrated it with pictures as handsome as a medieval herbal.

King of the barnyard, Chanticleer struts about all day. When a fox bursts into his domain, dupes him into crowing, and then grabs him in a viselike grip, Chanticleer must do some quick thinking to save himself and his barnyard kingdom.
