Illustrator Barbara Cooney has adapted the Nun's Priest's Tale to picture book format, turning it into a tale that warns against flattery. I'm just glad she didn't think of adapting The Wife of Bath tale. Thank goodness for small favors, eh?In this story a widow and her two daughters live by themselves in the countryside. The focus of the story rests squarely on their cocky (ha ha) rooster Chanticleer. A bird with a harem (the book flaps description, not mine) of seven hens, Chanticleer has a fairly restive life. One day, however, a sly fox comes with flattering words and tricks poor Chanticleer into closing his eyes. It is only through the rooster's quick thinking that he is able to escape the fox and get away.I've never read the original tale, so I'm not certain how this story adds up against it. Needless to say, I found it a funny amalgamation of several Aesop stories. Flattery was always utilized by Aesop in ways similar to this tale. In fact, Chanticleer's escape from the fox is nothing so much as an alternate version of the old story about the fox and the crow with a hunk of cheese. Cooney's illustrations do much to help this tale along. Using gorgeous pen and ink drawings and selective sections of color, this books at times looks like nothing so much as a collection of cheery Edward Gorey prints. The tale is quick and clean and I imagine many children will be fond it this particular retelling. All in all, an enjoyable Barbara WebbList : 24.95Available from Amazon 16.47on 11-18-2004Hey Webmasters! - Make Calendar WondersShow DVDsIn-depthPlayStation 2, Sitting Ducks PlayStation 2, -Ship of Fools,Living Together,Great White Hype,Awkward Moment,Stranger in Paradise,Living Together,Failure of Capitalism,Crossing,Production,Ship of Fools,Duck Soup,Great White Hype,Foreplay,Duck SoupARKADIA JAZZPOSTCARDSCHANSONSEDU.
