The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet! - Carmen Agra Deedy, Eugene Yelchin

Staff Pick

In the cacophonous village of La Paz, even the showers are cheerfully loud with song. But when residents find it hard to sleep, hear, or think, they fire the mayor and elect Don Pepe, who promises a break from the noise. Yet Don Pepe’s increasingly restrictive laws soon ban singing entirely. Only the arrival of a brave rooster awakens the town to the memory of song. Carmen Agra Deedy’s The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet! (Scholastic, $17.99) includes lively, affecting mixed-media illustrations from Eugene Yelchin, whose use of color heightens the story’s shifts in mood. This inspiring tale, available in both bilingual and English editions, is a delight to read aloud in both English and Spanish. Ages 4-8.
