Author and narrator Carmen Agra Deedy's vivaciousness is contagious. As she shares the tale of the rooster who speaks his mind, listeners know she is smiling the whole time. The village of La Paz is full of song, but when it gets too loud for thinking, the newly elected mayor calls for peace and quiet. All is well until a "saucy gallito" arrives in town and challenges the status quo. Will silence or song prevail? Listeners will smile at the banter between the mayor and the rooster. Deedy infuses the mayor with bluster and craftiness and the gallito with heartfelt responses. Jaunty music and sound effects complement the action. The production includes the complete read-along text and the author's note in both Spanish and English. A.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
