One of the most delightful fables in our heritage is 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.

Review quote

"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."
