A gripping story about faithful old Rooster, the champion cock of Limerick, who suddenly can't crow any more. This causes problems to everyone living on the farm. Farmer has no other choice but to send Rooster to stay with Aunt Hannah in town. From Aunt Lettie on the neighbouring farm, he buys Neville, a young show-off cockerel, who has to follow in the footsteps of Rooster on the farm. He only succeeds in doing this with the help of the head hen, Sarah.
An enjoyable book for the young ones, even though the older person can just as well identify with the story.
