Rooster's Off to See the World

One fine morning, a rooster sets off to see the world. Soon he’s joined by two cats, three frogs, four turtles and five fish. But one by one, his new friends decide to head home, leaving the rooster alone again – and ready to return to his own comfortable home too. Bold collage illustrations, a beguiling story and a simple introduction to counting make this much-loved book a delight for Eric Carle’s many young fans.
