Description

Pura Belpré Honoree Carmen Agra Deedy and Newbery Honor Book author/illustrator Eugene Yelchin have created a powerful tale that celebrates the spirit of freedom.

La Paz is a happy, but noisy village. A little peace and quiet would make it just right.

So the villagers elect the bossy Don Pepe as their mayor. Before long, singing of any kind is outlawed. Even the teakettle is afraid to whistle!

But there is one noisy rooster who doesn't give two mangoes about this mayor's silly rules. Instead, he does what roosters were born to do.
