How the Rooster Got His Crown

How the Rooster Got His Crown


Language/s: English

This exquisitely illustrated folktale from Western China tells a charming story of how a rooster saved the people and their harvests. There were six suns in this ancient land, and all but one were shot down with arrows by order of the emperor of China. The rooster coaxed the sun to come out from hiding in a cave, and was rewarded with a crown by the sun itself.
