As King of the Barnyard, Kadoodle thinks he can do whatever he wants, including crowing at all hours of the day—and night. No one in the farm can get any sleep. Finally, Honketta the goose takes it upon herself to set this rooster straight. She tells Kadoodle a clever story about another king, whose big round eye shines in the sky during the day and whose chorus heralds his arrival every morning. Kadoodle wants to sing in this noble chorus, but doing so requires timing—and patience. Now he is perched to find out what it really means to be King of the Barnyard—but only if he can wait until just the right moment to do just the right thing.

Jennifer P. Goldfinger illustrated THE KING'S CHORUS by Linda Hayward and her own A FISH NAMED SPOT (Little, Brown). She lives in Lexington, Massachusetts, with her family and their new dog, Lila. For more information visit www.jennifergoldfinger.com.From Booklist:
Self-proclaimed "King of the Barnyard," rooster Kadoodle crows when he wants to crow--including all night, which makes the farm animals so tired that they can't do their jobs. Then Honketta the goose "take matters into her own feathers." She tells Kadoodle a story about an even bigger king and his chorus--the planet's best roosters, whose job is to keep the King of the World awake so his "bright eye" will shine and make the corn grow. Kadoodle is eager to join this elite group, so the next day he proudly crows at just the right time. Hayward's animated prose will be great for reading aloud, and Goldfinger's charming, richly hued and textured illustrations incorporate plenty of playful perspectives, expressive animals, and whimsical scenes for kids to enjoy. Children will like this amusing, entertaining story, featuring a comical, egotistical protagonist who finds pride in a job well done. Shelle Rosenfeld
