Chanticleer and the Fox

By Barbara Cooney

The old fable of the proud rooster and the wily fox was retold by Chaucer in his Canterbury Tales. Cooney has adapted that version for children. The text is filled with descriptive language, while the illustrations, rich in color and strong lines, capture medieval times.
