A book that nearly defies categorization - equal parts Watership Down, Lord of the Rings, Animal Farm...and The Canterbury Tales. It’s the story of Chauntecleer the rooster, Lord of all he surveys until the twisted and evil Cockatrice sets his eye and his armies upon the land. In the end Chaunticleer and his farmland subjects must stand together in the face of the destruction of the earth and the wakening of Wyrm. It’s a story that’s both intimate and epic, horrifying and humorous, dreadful and hopeful. I’ve never read anything else quite like it. Certainly one of my top 10 favorite books of all time. Has to be read to be believed. —Pete Peterson

Here’s what Jason Gray had to say about it:

“It was a hard sell for me to read a book featuring a rooster as the main character. It helped that the back cover sported quotes praising the book as comparable to Tolkien’s Lord Of The Rings. I reluctantly read it when I was on tour with Sara Groves a number of years ago and couldn’t put it down. It’s one of the few books that I’ve read more than twice. It’s funny, moving, and beautiful - one of the most memorable books I’ve ever read.”
