Everyone knows that roosters herald the morning, but one song-loving fowl shakes up the barnyard, turning night into day with his incessant cock-a-doodle-doing, in Wakem the Rooster: Up All Night, a rollicking bedtime adventure from David FitzSimmons. Eye-catching images with a brightly feathered Wakem, from illustrator Richard Cowdrey, add to the comic mayhem as a farm full of sleepy cats, dogs, owls, and more offer surprisingly sage advice on how to get back on schedule.
