KIRKUS REVIEW

Adapted from the Chaucer, this is the fable of the vain but wise Cock and the crafty fox. Told in tasteful but simplified language, Barbara Cooney conveys the wisdom and charm of this story both through her discriminating use of language and her stylized illustrations which show the influence of illuminated manuscripts. A story which needs no defense, handled here with respect and facility.
