A rooster who just wants to sleep in gets a little help from a friend in this laugh-out-loud picture book from New Yorker artist Mike Twohy.

Rupert the rooster knows that every morning when the sun comes up he must cock-a-doodle-do—no matter what. But Rupert is terrible at waking up! And even worse, he can never, ever sleep in. Life just isn’t fair. When his friend Sherman the Sheep volunteers for the job, everything is perfect. Or is it?

About the Author:

Mike Twohy has been drawing cartoons as far back as he can remember. The author and illustrator of Poindexter Makes a Friend, Outfoxed, and Wake Up, Rupert!, he received his MFA in painting in 1973 from the University of California, Berkeley. In 1980 his first drawing was published in The New Yorker, which has published his cartoons regularly ever since. He has written and illustrated several books for children, including Outfoxed, about which the Horn Book said “storytime audiences will howl with laughter.” He lives with his wife, cat, and Newfoundland in Berkeley, California.

From Booklist:

Rupert the rooster is just not a morning person. He doesn’t think it’s fair that he has to get up before everyone else, and who can blame him? Certainly not his pal Sherman the sheep, who volunteers to take over Rupert’s job. Unfortunately, Sherman is so stressed out about getting up early that he bolts awake in the middle of the night and enlists his whole herd to holler out BAABA-BAABA-BA-A-A-A-AH! Everyone awakens with a jolt, and the farmer’s family and animals all attempt to go through their morning routines, half asleep and in the dark. Pure chaos ensues: the cows are in the kitchen, the farmer is in the horse trough, and it’s all Rupert’s fault. Sharp-lined, cartoonish ink drawings with lots of color complement the action-packed text. It seems a shame that Rupert is the only man for the job, due solely to his species, but he resumes his duties cheerfully and with a newfound sense of responsibility. Combine this with Bawk and Roll (2012), by Tammi Sauer and Ethan Long’s Pig Has a Plan (2012) for a lively farm-themed storytime. Grades K-2. --Paula Willey
