About The Book

A rooster tries to change his tune in this jazzy picture book that’s perfect for scatting aloud from the author of Naked! and I’m Bored, comedian Michael Ian Black.

Mel the rooster’s boring old cock-a-doodle-doo is making him cock-a-doodle-blue—until one day he decides to jazz it up with something brand-new: the cock-a-doodle-doo-bop!

But while Mel scats and trumpets away to his revised refrain, the rest of the barnyard isn’t getting into the groove. Because they want the sun, and the sun won’t rise to Mel’s creative interpretation of his standard cock-a-doodle-crow. So the barnyard residents will have to band together and compromise to bring about a fresh day in a fresh way!
