What has gotten into Brewster the rooster? The Macintosh family can't understand why their barnyard pet is crowing at the darnedest things. "I'm worried about Brewster," Magnolia said, mixing carrot cake batter with raisins. "Something has changed. It seems so strange but he's crowing at the oddest occasions." Whether it's the children playing catch in the yard, Zeb painting the barn red, or Grandma Pearl flipping hotcakes, Brewster can't stop from letting out an earsplitting cock-a-doodle-doo that sends the Macintosh family head over heels. When the barnyard brouhaha gets too much, even Doc Sawyer is consulted. But can he figure out how to help Brewster? Readers young and old will be charmed by the perfect solution to Brewster's problem.Devin Scillian is an Emmy-award-winning broadcast journalist with the NBC affiliate station in Detroit.

What's wrong with Brewster? Instead of waking up the farm every morning with his prize-winning crowing, he crows at very odd times: when young Topper is ready to throw a ball; when Zeb is standing on a ladder painting the barn; when Grandma Pearl is flipping hotcakes; and when Magnolia is watering her daisies. The family takes Brewster to Doc Sawyer, who says fever, flu, and infected feathers are unlikely, so he tapes up Brewster's beak. Then little Julie pipes up, He needs glasses! Of course. All of the strange incidents that caused the rooster to crow are sunlike shapes and colors. Luckily, the doc is also a rooster optician, who helps the newly bespectacled Brewster to crow right on time. The exaggerated illustrations heighten the humor of the comic figures and whimsically rhymed story. Though kids won't necessarily pick up the nearsighted clues, they'll find Brewster is a fowlishly funny rooster. Cummins, Julie
