Petook: The Rooster Who Met Jesus
By Caryll Houselander, Illustrated by Tomie de Paola

When a stranger intrudes upon the farmyard, proud papa Petook rushes back to his chicks and wife Martha to protect them from what could be a careless boy. Instead he finds a child caressing his newborns and showing kindness to the hens. Relieved, Petook crows happily. Years later, the rooster would see men being lifted onto crosses on the hill of nearby Calvary. An unknown sadness would fill him. On the third day, when a new bunch of chicks comes into the world, Petook realizes it is Easter morning. Just who was that boy?  Hardcover, 32 pages.
