Lowcountry storyteller Delores B. Nevils and acclaimed artist Jonathan Green collaborate to share the story of Amadeus, a loud and proud leghorn rooster who comes to live with a widow lady in the Corners community of St. Helena Island on the South Carolina coast. The widow lady's dogs--Kane and Able--and cats--Mae Liza, Scooter, and Pumpkin--are unhappy with the arrival of this new resident in their yard. Amadeus makes himself at home and becomes the pride of the neighborhood. When the widow lady comes to welcome Amadeus and his constant cock-a-doodle-dooing, a rivalry develops between the rooster and the original residents of the yard, with unexpected results. The cautionary story of Amadeus teaches a valuable lesson for readers of all ages about what can be lost without cooperation and friendship. As the characters learn from the consequences of their actions, if you do not take care of everyone and everything around you, then you just might end up with nothing.

Review:

"Amadeus by Delores B. Nevils will keep readers, young and not so young,
glued to their chairs until they finish the whole story. It is a delightful and engaging story with animal characters who play the role of real people with charm and grace. The illustrations by Jonathan Green add a measure of brilliance."--Andrew Billingsley, author of Yearning to Breathe Free: Robert Smalls of South Carolina and His Families

"This poignant, colorful book demonstrates how we must spread our love and care for all living things equally."--Pink! Magazine

"The book has an important and powerful meaning. The moral of the story is you have to take care of everything around you or you'll end up with nothing."--Jonathan Green
