"Nobody is more excited about the fair than the rooster Kookoory. So keyed up that he thinks the moon is the rising sun, he sets out to awaken his friends - Grampy Spindleshanks, the Baker, and Mrs. Parsley and her baby Babsy. ...

"But Kookoory doesn't know that his carrying on has attracted the attention of a hungry weasel. ...

"Finally dawn approaches, the weasel gets closer and closer, and everyone heads toward Edgerton Fair..."

Margaret Walden Froehlich (1930 - 2022) of West Redding, Connecticut was a long-time educator and beloved children's storyteller.
