It's 4 o'cluck in the morning. Another day is dawning....Colin the rooster puffs out his chest. Ready to do what he doodle-doos best. Telling the time has never been funnier, as the hens clock watch from food time until fox time. But there may not be a next time unless Colin and the hens save themselves from the greedy fox.

Kes Gray is the author of several children's picture books, including Eat Your Peas, which Kirkus Reviews praised as a "zany but telling tale," and The Get Well Soon Book: Good Wishes for Bad Times, a collaboration with Mary McQuillan.
Mary McQuillan has illustrated a number of humorous picture books for children. Booklist praised her art for Squeaky Clean by Simon Puttock for catching "all the Humor and rollicking antics."
PreSchool-Grade 2--This entertaining book captures the waddle and pluck of a group of chickens as they amble through a long, almost carefree day. From "4 o'cluck in the morning" until "12 o'cluck midnight," the eight egg layers and one rooster are busy dive-bombing ducks, visiting with Jane the blackbird, and finding shapes in the clouds. However, at nighttime, they tremble with fear because of a fox named Olga, even though they're safely locked in the henhouse. Of course, the quick-thinking rooster prevails, and the predator departs with dirt in her eye. This energetic and silly story has a lilting rhyme that sets a frolicking pace. The tale also addresses the concept of time, and while things often happen on the hour, events also occur at 12:25 or at 10:57, so that the flow of hours and minutes is more natural. The illustrations enhance the humor of the text; they are colorful, bright, and effectively textured. Ranging from orange to light blue to purple with hearts, each chicken is visually unique and full of personality. McQuillan supports the time-telling concept with a visual prop--a small egg on animated legs with a numberless clock face and black hands. With its infectious sense of fun, this title can be used as a read-aloud or as a lighthearted aid in enlightening children about timekeeping.--Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
