The Rooster Prince of Breslov (Hardcover)

The Rooster Prince of Breslov Cover Image
Email or call for price.


This picture book brings a light touch and engaging silliness to the story of a prince who rejects the lavish luxury of his upbringing in favor of a life as . . . a rooster. The only person who can persuade the prince to reconsider is neither a doctor nor a magician but a wise teacher who is willing to become a rooster too. Told to the author by her grandmother, who brought it from Eastern Europe a century ago, this traditional tale is accompanied by strikingly witty and graceful illustrations that add their own folkloric flavor. Author's note.

About the Author

Eugene Yelchin is a Russian-born painter and illustrator. He received a Newbery Honor for Breaking Stalin's Nose, which he both wrote and illustrated. He lives in southern California with his family.

Praise For…

"Her [Stampler] witty, dialogue-based storytelling nicely dramatizes such concepts as excess, sufficiency, and the relationship between learning compassion and attaining 'moral authority.'"--Horn Book

"Yelchin's self-satiric figures pitch exaggeratedly forward, the rooster postures comically extreme. Stampler' touching note demonstrates this layered tale' openness to multiple interpretations."--Kirkus, starred review
